Event description
Learn the Japanese decorative embroidery technique of Sashiko

About this Event

Sashiko is a form of decorative reinforcement stitching from Japan that started out of practical need.

Taking a piece of plain fabric and using fabric markers and rulers and  marking with patterns/lines. On completion of stitching lines the fabric is now ready for the straight stitching that will then create the pattern.  A few hours slow stitching using a straight stitch and creating a piece of fabric that can be used in a variety of ways on completion.

Duration 4 hrs 


No specific skills required as only needle and thread would be used in the making.

About Sharon:

Having worked in the office environment since leaving school and only using her sewing/crafting skills as a hobby she found herself having to give up work due to personal circumstances. She has run a hobby group for 8 years and was eager to pass on her knowledge to others and watch them become hooked too.

Getting the first quilting group off the ground took a lot of hard work and perseverance and five years on, Sharon now runs regular quilting groups in Highbridge, Godney and Wells.
