beginner or familiar with sashiko, you will find this a fascinating exploration of an exciting and traditional craft.

the book includes an introduction on what materials and equipment you will need, then a guide through the basic technques. Next, the author provides 30

detailed designs, ranging from the Ougi (Fan), Ume (plum blossom), to Shippu (seven treasures) and Sayagata (Buddhist symbols). Each has a full drawing and

critically gives the order of working. there is also 10 projects that range from aprons to placemats, cushions to bags.
