Our craft/Textile social will be a bit different this month. - a beginners Sashiko embroidery night. Everyone welcome - member and non-members.

Sashiko is a traditional Japanese embroidery technique used for decoration and clothing repairs.

We will have all the materials you need to get started on the night and will be there to show you how. It will be first come first served but we’ll try to have enough for as many people come!

Date: Tuesday, November 1st, 2022
Time: from 6.30pm to 9:00 pm (we’ll start demo for 7)

That’s fine - it’s not a class and will be easy to join a bit later.

Hi Tracy, I’m so sorry I can’t make it in this weather - I was hoping to cycle but its around 40minutes and doesn’t look like its easing up.

It looked like a great session!

Thank everyone that took part in the Sashiko evening last night - especially coming on such a miserable night. I certainly enjoyed it and I hope you did too!

Apologies for my terrible photos

These are the sites I mentioned where you can ready more and download templates - and there are plenty more online and on YouTube:

Thanks for organising this evening, it was fun to try something different. I’m interested in seeing how this embroidery moves into invisible mending.
Looking forward to next months meeting to learn other things.
