Sashiko is a traditional Japanese embroidery style which dates back to the Edo period (1615 – 1868). It was mostly used by the working class farming and fishing families as to make stronger more practical work wear. A worn-out piece was stitched with layers of old cloth, producing a sturdy garment passed down through generations.

Today, Sashiko is used in any number of products from clothing, bags, home linen, cushions, rugs, blankets, bedspreads, and wall art.

Join Maike from the library team to find out more about this interesting and creative style of embroidery with a few basic rules and simple patterns.

All materials provided.
