The Path of Creative Exploration

Adventure along with the Shibaguyz as they take you down a rabbit hole that began with a website about Japanese mended fabric and ended up in the curation room in the basement of a museum surrounded by two-hundred year old garments (and Elvis – more about that in the talk). Come hear the fascinating history of Boro and Sashiko from two researchers who got to live history by reading it in antique fabrics. 

A webinar - 90 minutes of creative exploration. The recording will be made available after the event.

Find a New Passion

You said this was addictive, and you're right.

I've converted a corner of my bedroom to use as my stitching spot. Bought a floor lamp for good light and a firestick so I can have trash tv on in the background

 It is every bit as relaxing and soothing as you claimed.

Get Stitching

Hey, Shibaguyz!!

I am having so much fun playing with boro and sashiko stitches and finding everything that might need 'mending' in my and my kids’ wardrobes.

I learned several things that I didn’t know that I didn’t know!

Inspiration and New Skills

Good afternoon Shibaguyz! In case y’all haven’t heard it enough, your class is the best ever and I had a wonderful time and learned so much.

I just got a little treasury of sashiko patterns and am excited to do a sampler!

Again, thank you so much for teaching an awesome skill!
