Sashiko Japanese Embroidery

Make a decorative tea towel and learn a valuable skill for embellishing any textile! Sashiko was originally used by farming and fishing communities in Japan to repair and reinforce clothing, as well as to embellish plain fabric. The techniques are simple, but the results are stunning! Running stitches are used to create tessellating geometric patterns that represent different images found in nature.
