On April 11th, the day before the actual tour begin, I had a good meeting with some Japanese Sashiko Artisans, whom they consider themselves as "students". I would like to share the bag Shigeko Sensei carries - It is also a part of Sashiko, yet it is quite different from what we do - yet, it can be applied to our ordinary as "Sashiko".
On April 13th, we will have the actual workshop. I am looking forward to sharing more history & information about Koginsashi. I sincerely think that the Koginsashi World should be also introduced by someone who can communicate to other Japanese Sashiko Artisans!
