If you are in the Vancouver BC area, we will be at Knit City Sept 29/30 Booth 232. We'd love to see you there. And if you can't be there, then we hope you enjoy shopping here! Susan and Hanay.
I've put together a boro starter kit with a quarter meter of Osnaburg cotton fabric for backing, 35 grams of dyed yarn and momen fabric pieces in various size, and 2 skeins of white sashiko thread. The fabric pieces will be in assorted sizes of Japanese cotton fabrics in a range of indigo blues and dark taupes (browns, blacks, deep reds...)
Basic instruction for making a square of boro stitched fabric are include. After you have stitched you boro piece you can use your own pattern to cut and make it into something, or you can hem it for a decorative mat.
