Sashiko basics: coaster/sachet—Grownup Summer Camp
Sashiko needlework originated in Japan as a way to reinforce or repair fabric; today it is also used for decoration.
Session three of Grownup summer camp has you practicing sashiko techniques while you perform decorative stitching to make coasters or sachets.
What is Grownup summer camp? We started it last year at Make It Sew with the belief that kids shouldn’t be having all the crafty fun. Camp is in session on select Wednesdays this summer and a Make It Sew camp counselor will teach grownups a low-intensity stitching craft.
Accacia Mullen is counselor for this session with a lesson on basic sashiko tools, materials, and techniques.
Camp fees are $25 per session with materials extra (and eligible for 10% class discount).
