Learn the traditional Japanese needlework technique of Sashiko with this fun and inspiring craft deck! Sashiko, the traditional Japanese technique of needlework quilting, uses simple running stitch to create beautifully decorative patterns ideal for patchwork, quilting and embroidery. Sashiko (pronounced shash-ko) means 'little pierce' and refers to the small running stitch that is worked to build up distinctive decorative patterns, of which there are hundreds. Chosen from the patterns included in The Ultimate Sashiko Sourcebook, author Susan Briscoe's favourites are presented in a handy card format which can be used on their own or in conjunction with the book. Get started on your Sashiko journey with these 52 stitch patterns presented on easy-to-follow cards with everything you need to know about creating beautiful patterns from the simplest of stitches. The cards are the perfect introduction to this ancient art, with a beautiful photograph sample presented along with the name of the stitch pattern and a little bit about it, including which other patterns it pairs well with or may be similar to. The cards show the finished stitch pattern as a beautiful swatch, along with a brief history of its name, and on the overleaf the instructions for how to make the pattern yourself, with a clear diagram. Among the 52 cards are nine easy to identify foundational stitch patterns that act as the starting point for sashiko. Everything you need to know to get started - from the absolute basics to the materials needed - are included in the handy 16-page booklet. Additional trips and tricks make the card deck a complete package, perfect for a novice stitcher or for a more experienced crafter looking to expand their knowledge. The cards are presented in a wafer sealed box, with a belly band, making them easy to carry around out and about, while also easy to store.
