Sashiko is one of the greatest Japanese traditional embroidery techniques which originated over 200 years ago in Yamagata. Sashiko is very popular with existing sewing enthusiasts who are attracted to its beautiful and unique stitching patterns.

In this live online class, we will make a napkin using a distinctive sashiko kit which features traditional Japanese designs. The fabric is pre-stencilled and this will be cleared away once you wash your napkins. It's so easy to start as you just follow the pre-lines then your sashiko stitches will define the image.

This fun and hands-on online workshop is perfect for beginners or those who love stitching. Your teacher, Mari Yamada, will be fully supporting you virtually in an easy way to understand for you.

All the materials are imported from Japan so you will get to enjoy an authentic and high-quality experience. Enjoy a friendly and relaxed setting and leave the session with new skills, knowledge and all your beautiful creations!

I am from Tsugaru, Aomori, Japan, exactly where Kogin was born and I started learing Kogin when I was a child. So I grew up with many of the traditional art & crafts and those techniques in Aomori naturally. I have been building my skills and knowledge for more than 20 years and have helped sewers, to introduce the traditions overseas and want to connect with you for fun.

Nowadays there are so many new styles of embroidery patterns but used 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…You will find your favourite one from same samples.
I would love to share my Kogin knowledge with all the needlework lovers!

The teacher was excellent and the Sashiko class was very enjoyable. Mari is very skilled in her craft and was happy to share her techniques. The materials provided were excellent and the explanations were easy to understand. The venue was good and had good light so we could see clearly. I really enjoyed the class.
