This month’s Sashiko Subscription Kit features a heavier weight pre-printed navy blue cotton with squares printed in wash-out ink. The designs are perfect for spring with flowers, dragonflies, and bunnies, and we have chosen a selection of Hida Sashiko threads to go with the fabric. And that’s not all… we managed to acquire an extremely limited run of yarn dyed cottons from Cosmo that were made especially for the Tokyo Quilt Festival this year! A selection of these fabrics will be included in each kit.
Each month we offer a limited number of kits in our Etsy shop. You can buy a three, six, or twelve month subscription or order monthly kits individually, but as we limit how many kits are produced, some may sell out! Buying the extended monthly subscriptions is your best bet to make sure you get each kit, and save quite a bit of money over individual kits.
If you like Japanese incense, we also offer it as an add-on item with your subscription.
This kit will ship on May 15. The kit for June will be listed on May 16 for pre-order.
Sashiko Boro Class and Trunk Show at Quilt n’ Things – June 1 & 2 – Montrose, CA
It’s my first SoCal sashiko class! Come join me on Friday, June 1 for a meet-and-greet event at Quilt n’ Things in Montrose, and a Sashiko Boro class on Saturday, June 2. For tickets and more information, click on the link in the title or contact the shop here.
I’ll bring my private collection of vintage sashiko pieces to the San Francisco Asian Art Museum’s Education Studio on Saturday, June 9 at 10:30am. This will be more academic than my usual Quilt Guild lectures, focusing not just on the textiles, but the socio-economic history of Japan and how cotton changed everything.
Open House – June 23 – Alameda, CA
It’s that time again! Come visit the Kimonomomo studio in Alameda and browse our inventory, including many fabrics and items not listed in our Etsy shop or brought to quilt shows. Our Open House events are the ideal time to bring in your half-finished project that needs just a little touch of something Japanese to make it shine. See what’s new and what’s on sale, then go around the corner to The ReCrafting Co. (consignment arts & crafts items), Second Home (consignment vintage home furnishings and really cool stuff), or any of the many restaurants and cafes (we recommend The Local for the best coffee or Julie’s for delicious teas) on Park Street.
