    This is Sashiko Stitching!

    Sashiko is getting popular for its simple yet beautiful stitching. We will share how to make these beautiful Sashiko stitching with working with you throughout the 3 hours long workshops.


    Ordinary, yet therefore very special.

    Sashiko is (was) too ordinary for the Japanese people so we didn't establish "the way" of Sashiko, We will share how the Japanese developed Sashiko. Related topics are Boro & Kofu.


    Learn from the expert.

    We believe that there is no such a thing as "rule" in Sashiko. However, based on its history, there are techniques which can improve the productivity and efficiency. Learn it from the experts.

  • Check our Youtube Channel to preview our Workshop. This video is how we make a simple running stitch. The workshop is more than this video, of course!

  • Frequent Question to Sashiko Workshops

    Please contact us if you have more questions. The relief to participate in the workshop is important.

    Do I need any experience in Sashiko or hand sewing?

    We do not require any Sashiko or other types of hand-sewing previous experience. The participant with other types of embroidery experience like quilting may experience a bit of difficulty to adjust your hands to our method. However, everyone who participated left the reviews that it was uncomfortable (different) first but then improved over 3 hours.

    What kind of material &tools do I need?

    Please bring Curiosity & Passion to Sashiko. We will provide all the materials you need in the workshop. You may bring your own sewing kit, like threaders and thread clippers, if you prefer.

    Can you offer the workshop in my city?

    Our goal is to offer the Sashiko workshops anywhere in the world.

    Atsushi, Sashiko instructor who speaks English, will travel to anywhere in the world if the conditions meet. Please contact us for the detail.

    I have some experience in Sashiko. Should I take the basic workshop?

    I ask everyone to take the basic/core Sashiko stitching workshop.

    Although I understand that there are many people who enjoy Sashiko, it is critical to teach you how to use the Sashiko tools (needle & thimble) in our method. Please understand that I want to be fair to everyone how is in the workshop.


    *If you are confident that you are using the thimble and needle in our method after watching our Youtube videos, please contact us so we will check your stitching form and give you the permission to take advanced workshops.
