If you're looking for relaxing indoor activities, then this online class and DIY embroidery kit will work a treat! Learn how to make projects using Japanese Kogin techniques from the comfort of your own living room.

Kogin is one of the greatest Japanese traditional embroidery techniques, which originated over 200 years ago in Tsugaru, Aomori (Northern Japan). This technique is now very popular with existing sewing enthusiasts who are attracted to its beautiful and unique stitching patterns in colourful materials.

In this fun and hands-on live streaming workshop, you will learn Kogin stitching techniques with authentic materials and make four stripes that can be used as a bookmark, an ornament decoration on your Christmas tree, on Mother's Day flowers, a bottle of wine, and more!

All the materials are imported from Japan so you will get to enjoy an authentic and high-quality experience.

This online class is intended to be a relaxed and enjoyable time with a hint of creativity, where you can maximise your happy moments!

I am from Tsugaru, Aomori, Japan - the place where Kogin was born. Naturally, I grew up with many of the traditional Aomori art and crafts and began learning Kogin when I was a child.

I have been building my skills and knowledge for more than 20 years and have helped introduce many sewers to these overseas traditions.

Despite all of the new styles of embroidery patterns today, the original Kogin techniques are still being created by needlework lovers in Japan. Its design and texture are well cared for, beautiful, cute, warm, stylish, and modern.

I would love to connect with you for fun and share my Kogin knowledge with all the needlework lovers out there!
