Take Home Kit: Sashiko Sewing
Celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month by learning sashiko stitching, a traditional Japanese embroidery technique using the running stitch to create beautiful designs on fabric. Through this course on our database CreativeBug, you’ll learn how to work with traditional patterns (or make your own designs based on a grid layout) to make decorative pieces or mend and patch garments. No matter the method you choose, you’ll find that sashiko is a great way to slow down and stitch with intention, creating beauty from simplicity. Materials for this class can be picked up from your chosen library on the day of the program; then at your leisure, watch the online course through CreativeBug.
