Textiles: Sashiko Quilted Pouch
Tutor: Janice Gunner MSDCCourse Code: 4723-05

Summary

During this workshop you will learn about the beautiful Japanese hand quilting technique of Sashiko. This is usually worked with white stitching on indigo coloured fabric, and you will be shown traditional examples and techniques, together with some contemporary ways of using this lovely technique.

Description

For this class I have designed a useful little zipped pouch which is fully lined, has zip closure and self-gusset.

Please bring with you

I can provide a kit that contains authentic Japanese fabric, lining fabric, zip, Sashiko thread and specialist needle, and a pattern. Cost £25.
Extra fabric and thread will be available for purchase during the course

If you prefer to supply your own fabric you will need:
1 x fat eighth of dark blue sashiko fabric
1 x fat eighth contrast lining fabric

In addition:
1 pack of Chaco (carbon tracing paper) friends can share this, but I will have some you may borrow if you prefer.
A knitting needle for marking the design (4mm or old size 8) or a Hera (Japanese marking tool)
Hand sewing kit to include pins, scissors, tacking thread, thimble etc.
Note pad, pencil, rule, paper scissors and masking tape
NB: Sashiko is not usually stitched in a hoop, but you may bring one if you prefer.

Sashiko fabric, thread and needles are available from Susan Briscoe Designs.
