Sashiko embroidery is a Japanese needle-art that can be both meditative and addictive. Colors are worked into the design by making “little stabs” along the printed lines, creating a surprisingly complex final piece. Once complete, the ink washes out, leaving only your perfect sewing. TaDaa provides beautiful thread, sashiko needles, a leather thimble, and a linen base, as well as directions in both English and Japanese that are charming and fun.
