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.
This kit is a good choice for a first time sashiko stitcher, or if your are looking for a few sashiko blocks to add into your quilt top. It contains 4 different sashiko blocks (9" x 9" each) plus 4 flower motifs, 1 skein of 100 meters of Olympus sashiko thread, and a package of Olympus needles (one short, one long) and a leather sashiko thimble.
Fabric and thread are 100% cotton. Fabric is printed with wash away stitching lines.
Do not iron before stitching, and do not wash until after stitching is completed.
All you need to do is thread your needle with about 20" of the sashiko thread, stitch over the printed markings, and when all the stitching is finished, wash the fabric to remove the markings.
