    Sashiko

    I've been pondering the thought of doing Sashiko, does anyone here do it? looks like it could be very meditative.

    Not much different than hand quilting, which I do a lot of.
    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

      It’s a beautiful type of embroidery. You might really enjoy the rhythm of making uniform stitches. Give it a try on something small and see how it goes.

        I do like the look of it, but hand work like that would drive me a bit batty. Or, you could buy a sashiko sewing machine for the small price of $2,999! https://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/BL-BLQK.php

          I'll just deduct that from the large sum of no life ins. Bob left me!!

        Or....you could buy a used one on eBay for $1250. That is if you hurry. Bidding ends in 12 hours 35 minutes 16 seconds. I was a bit tempted because I just love machines. Do I need another one.....nah!

          I have a little opinion on this (don't throw anything) Shashiko is a Japanese medium and it's done on indigo fabric. My husband was Japanese, I live in a heavily populated Japanese community. So to me it's just big stitch hand quilting. It's like Hawaiian quilting is always an echo stitch. It's a big stich too, but echoed.

            Your right Lorie, the traditional started out as a way to repair workers clothing, it was their way of a decretive way of mending. But as usual when it came to other cultures, we had to be different, and gussie it up.

          I have done sashiko but not on indigo. It differs from Big Stitch by being uniform. I also did black work embroidery on even weave fabric. Yes, it is very soothing once you get into a rhythm.

            I am no expert but I thought Sashiko is normally done with the stitching lines really really close together, like closer than 1/4 inch. To me it looks like big stitch quilting, usually done in dark thread vs the white thread of traditional hand quilting.

              I do not do it, but there is a shop about five miles from my house that specializes in it. They have a huge following online......https://shiboridragon.com/

                Thanks for the link! My youngest is into embroidery and the preprinted cloth might interest her.

                Shibori Dragon is on 27th and my son lives on 35th. It's about a 10 minute walk for me. For some odd reason I thought they had closed the retail store. I used to walk over every time I visit.

                They close or move every three years or so. They just recently moved again in the past few months. This time, they are in the same building, still on 27th, but a smaller section.

              Learned something new about these designs.....
              shibori is designs dyed into the fabric. Sashiko is the stitching of the designs.

                I am just getting started on sashiko, so am eager to find links and dig deeper. I love the look of the repetitive stitching on the dark blue.
