April 10/19. Two notes: Yoko Saito books are back in stock and I've aded new dyed yarn fabric bundles. Also, working conditions are a little challenging from the big move :-) so please let me know if you find any errors, or have any concerns with your orders. Happy stitching! Susan
Contains full size patterns for all projects shown on cover, also instructions for how to sashiko stitch and how to sew up you project.
The sashiko designs in this pattern have symbolic meanings. They are Flax to symbolize strong health and connection to community. This one is often stitched on baby clothes and blankets. Tortoiseshell symbolizes longevity, so it might be a nice touch on a gift for a birthday. Bishamon symbolizes prosperity and linked crosses, luck.
I can't help thinking that combined in a quilt for a gift you would be wishing the recipient good health, long life, prosperity, luck and many friends. How nice would that be to receive?
