Sashiko Embroidery Kits

Sashiko Embroidery Kits. Sashiko is a wonderful embroidery style using decorative running stitches that originated in Japan some 400 years ago.

Sashiko Embroidery uses simple stitches to create fabulous effects. In Sashiko embroidery the needle is used to work in and out to gather the fabric, and then pulled through to create a line of even stitches.

Sashiko Embroidery can be as simple or complicated as you wish. The crucial element is that stitches are evenly sized and spaced, to provide some fabulous repeat effects and designs based on nature or repetitive geometrics.
