Slow the hectic pace and learn sashiko, an ancient Japanese hand stitching technique. Carol R. Ziogas expertly explains how to choose fabrics, transfer designs, and use traditional tools and threads to apply beautiful accents to quilts, home décor, and fiber art pieces.

Use the designs provided to make a wallhanging and learn straight, persimmon blossom, and hemp leaf stitches. An adorable bunny makes its appearance as a family crest and you’ll also learn how to do freehand sashiko and variations.

Carol shows how to use sashiko to mend and embellish clothing, much like the ancient Japanese farmers who developed this method to patch their own clothes in order to keep warm. Merge tranquility and beauty as you learn this time-honored technique.

For your convenience, this class can be purchased for online viewing or purchased on DVD.


Carol Ziogas learned the joys of quilting, costuming, and historical research as a child from her mother, probably as a way to keep her quiet. She owns nine sewing machines, most of them antique Singers, but prefers the mobility of a small kit with hand sewing supplies and whatever sashiko project she has going on. The joys of that six-year old learning to hand sew with her mother’s scraps never left, and Carol tackles each project with the same childlike enthusiasm she did back then. She spends her time researching and lecturing on Japanese textiles as well as teaching hand sewing and sashiko. Her shop, Kimonomomo, can be found on Etsy.
