Sashiko Embroidery Workshop


Join us to learn the art of sashiko in this beginner embroidery workshop. Sashiko, which means "little stabs," is a textile mending and reinforcing technique from Japan involving a simple running stitch with strong white thread. Nowadays, this technique is used more for decoration and embellishment, like in these fun fabric coasters we'll make! You'll hand stitch the stunning geometric pattern on fabric squares and then assemble them into coasters for your home. You'll make one coaster during the class but will also leave with enough to make a second. Because coasters are always better in pairs!

Guest Teaching Artist:


Megan Eckman designs approachable embroidery for modern stitchers as the head designer and owner of Studio MME. After graduating from art school, she turned her talents to helping others embrace their inner creativity. Her whimsical embroidery kits are sold all over the country and in 2016 she partnered with DMC to create a custom line of embroidery kits for their Commonthread collection. She currently lives just outside Portland.
