Sashiko master Atsushi Futatsuya is back to NY!
Futatsuya gives three-hour hands-on session of basic sashiko technique to stitch traditional “asanoha” (hemp leaf) pattern.

The workshop comes with a complete kit of sashiko needles, a sashiko thimble, a skein of white sashiko thread, and fabric with asano-ha patterns printed on. You do not need to bring any tools, but you are also welcome to bring you own sewing tools.
