A Threaded Needle is moving to Maple Ridge BC March 1. Nothing will change for our online customers, but for our local show shoppers it means we will be missing some spring shows :-( We will still be at Creative Festival, Abbotsford, and we'll have a small booth at Creative Festival in Victoria in March.
A wonderful new addition to sashiko preprinted ready to stitch fabrics. These family Crest sashiko patterns are on Olympus Tsumugi cotton fabric.
Choose color when ordering. Notes about the colors: The light blue is quite a gray blue, and the gray is a metallic yellow gray that I find a wonderful color, but it may not appear to be gray to everyone :-) The black is very black, and the red and indigo colors are deeply saturated. These are beautiful and unusual colors, if you like natural or earthy colors you will love them but you like bright clear colors, these are not for you!
Each Family Crest panel is 24" x 42.5" and has eight 16" blocks plus eight 4 1/2" blocks, with enough room around them for seam allowances, making them perfect for cutting into individual blocks for sewing into quilts, table covers, clothing, bags, or wherever your imagination takes you! The print will wash away cleanly after your stitching is finished. Colorfast and washable with no significant shrinkage.
More Notes: The photographs here show all 6 colors this sashiko panel is available in, and the matching bolts of plain Tsumugi fabrics. I've included a photograph of my hippari coat to show how this fabric drapes. You can find the plain tsumugi fabrics and the hippari coat pattern on this site, look in Japanese Quilting section. There are also traditional sashiko panels for stitching available in the Sashiko Pre printed Fabrics section.
