Sashiko — By Hand — taught by Pam Doffek @ Woodville Community Center
Mar 18 @ 9:30 am – 12:30 pm

A half-day class taught by Pam Doffek

  • Saturday March 18
  • 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
  • Woodville Community Center; 8000 Old Woodville Highway; Tallahassee FL 32315
  • $30 per class, or $50 for both classes (see Sashiko — By Machine; same day, 1:30–4:30) (Fees include kits) Sign up at a Guild meeting.

Sashiko (pronounced:  Saa-She-Koh, not Sash-eye-ko) is an antique Japanese hand embroidery technique used by peasant and lower class workers to provide warmth to clothing and decoration at the same time.  It was traditionally done on 2 layers of indigo (dark) fabrics with a thick thread and no “batting”. Sashiko history and patterns will be discussed in class.  I’ve taught this class since 2004 and its resurgence and adaptation to quilting are heartening as it’s a very flexible technique.

Kits with fabric, thread, needles, and patterns will be included in the class fee.  The class project will be an 18” X 24” sampler of patterns suitable for a pillow, table centerpiece or incorporation into an apron or other piece of clothing.

A student supply list will be provided with class payment.

 

Sashiko — By Machine — taught by Pam Doffek @ Woodville Community Center
Mar 18 @ 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

A half-day class taught by Pam Doffek

  • Saturday March 18
  • 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • Woodville Community Center; 8000 Old Woodville Highway; Tallahassee FL 32315
  • $30 per class, or $50 for both classes (see Sashiko — By Hand; same day, 9:30–12:30) (Fees include kits) Sign up at a Guild meeting.

Sashiko CAN be done on a domestic sewing machine, all you need is a straight stitch machine that can vary the stitch length. Although we will work on 2 layers of fabric (no batting) the machine technique expands well to projects made with lightweight batting, embellishment on clothing or quilting on a layered quilt. Alternative use of non-cotton threads and decorative stitches as well as Sashiko machines will be discussed but not done in class.

Kits with fabric, patterns and water-soluble stabilizer will be included in the class fee.  The class project will be a 12” X 18” oval placemat. Students will provide their own binding/finishing technique outside of class. The class will require a machine that minimum does straight stitch and walking food (optional)

A student supply list will be provided with class payment.
