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
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, 2 dragonfly motifs, and two 4" sashiko blocks. The entire uncut ready to stitch fabric is 100% cotton and measures 25" x 25" (64cm x 64cm) Included are 100 meter skein navy Olympus sashiko thread, one package (2 needles) Olympus sashiko needles, and an Olympus leather sashiko thimble.
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. Some instructions are included, for more visit our sashiko blogs.
