with The Shibaguyz


Rice Stitch

RECORDING from June 15th, 2021

Let’s start at the very beginning… a very good place to start. Every journey begins with that first step. Whether you’re learning your scales or heading in a new direction, all those adages are true; and this is your invitation to take that first step with us on your hitomezashi sashiko journey. Hitomezashi sashiko is one of the forms of sashiko: the Japanese hand stitching technique for mending, reinforcing, and enhancing fabric. Rice Stitch is a combination of three stitch patterns that we use for visible mending, quilting, and general embellishment and we’re going to take you through each phase of making this stitch pattern and show you examples of how to use it in your crafting and making. 

Whether you are looking to learn a new hand stitching craft or want to kick up your visible mending, embroidery, or quilting skills, come take your first steps with us and start your sashiko journey today!

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.

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!
