Should I purchase the kit to join?
The threads in the kit are carefully selected after running several tests, so you can get the best result with the kit. But you can also prepare the materials by yourself.
-Sarashi fabric (or thin cotton fabric)
-Sashiko threads both thin and thick with some color options
(For embroidery floss, I'll guide you through how many strands to use)
-Sashiko needle (or long needle with big eye)
When does the course start?
Starting in April 2022, we will have 12 lessons scheduled in 3 months. It means almost once a week.
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. If you can't join the live session, you can watch the recording later.

Is this course for advanced stitchers only?
I won't say it's easy for beginners. But you can learn how to make hanafukin step by step from scratch, so it is possible enough. I will be there for you to help you complete. Beginners are welcomed to join!
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.
