The Striking Art of Sashiko Embroidery

29th September 2023

Sashiko is a traditional Japanese embroidery technique where intricate and ornate patterns are created using running stitch. Recently enjoying a surge in popularity, the tradition of stitching white thread onto navy blue fabric creates a striking effect.

We have a great range of products to help you learn or perfect Sashiko embroidery.

Sashiko Stencils #2 is a collection of nine 3” x 5” stencils, allowing stitchers to transfer the designs onto their own fabric.

Made of durable plastic for easy reuse, Sashiko Stencils #2 also includes an instruction booklet so all you need is needle, thread and fabric and you’ll be creating your very own Sashiko patterns in no time.

We also have some Sashiko kits still available, that our very own kit team have put together, with each one showcasing a different Hitomi Fujita design.

Each kit includes a pre-printed panel on 100% cotton fabric, white Sashiko thread and eight Sashiko needles, ready for you to stitch to your heart’s content!
