We are a group of Sashiko Artisans. Upcycle Stitches (by Atsushi in USA) and Sashi.Co (by Keiko in Japan) are our activity name. Keiko is a great Sashiko artist, and Atsushi is trying to be a good storyteller while he enjoys Sashiko stitching.
The Sashiko workshops we offer is more than "fun time" together. It is different from the other types of workshops like 'let's do Sashiko together." The workshop is more like a "learning opportunity" where your brain and hands would be keep moving.
Sashiko is getting popular day by day. Many suppliers jumped into the market to share the Sashiko thread, needles, thimbles, and fabric. We provide the supplies that we use in our usual & ordinary project - the best for our Sashiko project.
