Can I use any fabric or thread?
If you cannot find any sashiko materials around you, you can use any fabric or threads. When I used to live in New Zealand, I tried lots of threads or needles by myself!
When does the course start?
Starting in October 2022, we will have 6 lessons scheduled in 2 months.
What time does the workshop start?
Workshop starts either at 10am, 3pm or 9pm (JST) in turn. It's because the workshop participants will join from different time zones and I want everyone to join the live session at least once a month. When you can't join the live session, you can watch the recording later.

Is this course for advanced stitchers only?
Everyone can join this course even if it's your very first sashiko experience. We start from the basic pattern, and all the sashiko terms or unique techniques will be explained repeatedly in the class.
I don't want to be recorded.
The recording will be mainly me teaching and my hands demonstrating. If you don't want to be on the recording, you can mute yourself and ask questions through the chat. Or you can wait for the recording to be uploaded on the members' site. But stitching together and connecting with like-minded people is one of the purposes of this course. so I recommend you to join the live sessions as much as possible.
