Sashiko Mending: Intro To Japanese Embroidery For Decoration And Repair (ONLINE CLASS) $25-$60
sashiko

In this online version of our Sashiko Mending class, you will learn about this beautiful, ancient Japanese embroidery technique which was originally developed to strengthen quilts and kimonos, and lengthen the life of textiles. Sashiko, which translates to "little stabs", traditionally uses white cotton thread on dark blue indigo-dyed fabric. A single running stitch is used to create lovely geometric patterns that can be used to decorate fabric or reinforce ripped denim. You will learn how to properly execute this running stitch, and transfer geometric designs onto indigo-dyed linen. Our instructor will guide you in the creation of your own sashiko design sampler. Once everyone has the technique down, the instructor will demonstrate how to apply this sashiko technique to your ripped jeans in order to repair and reinforce areas where the denim has torn or frayed.

Sashiko Mending: Intro To Japanese Embroidery For Decoration And Repair (ONLINE CLASS) $25-$60
sashiko

In this online version of our Sashiko Mending class, you will learn about this beautiful, ancient Japanese embroidery technique which was originally developed to strengthen quilts and kimonos, and lengthen the life of textiles. Sashiko, which translates to "little stabs", traditionally uses white cotton thread on dark blue indigo-dyed fabric. A single running stitch is used to create lovely geometric patterns that can be used to decorate fabric or reinforce ripped denim. You will learn how to properly execute this running stitch, and transfer geometric designs onto indigo-dyed linen. Our instructor will guide you in the creation of your own sashiko design sampler. Once everyone has the technique down, the instructor will demonstrate how to apply this sashiko technique to your ripped jeans in order to repair and reinforce areas where the denim has torn or frayed.

You will also need an internet connection strong enough to stream audio and video. After you register for this class, we will email you a link with details on how to join.

Instructor Bio: Fueled by a long time desire to avoid jeans shopping at any cost, WorkshopSF sewing instructor and DIY Jack of All Trades Hayley learned the art of sashiko in order to keep her jeans in rotation for what some have called "too long". She now has become addicted to sashiko mending, and swears she owns at least one pair of jeans somewhere that lack rips or sashiko. Of course, no one has ever seen them...
