The Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania and the Society for Contemporary Craft will present an information session and demonstration on sashiko (刺し子) on October 7.
Sashiko is a decorative reinforcement stitch, similar to Western quilting, traditionally with white thread on an indigo background. The presentation will be given by Fumiyo Iwadachi and the hands-on making session will be facilitated by Itsuko Hotta.
The event runs from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. The cost is $50, and the required registration can be done on the Society for Contemporary Craft website. It's located at 2100 Smallman St. in the Strip District (map).
