Create the look of traditional, hand-work stitching passed down through generations on the Sashiko Machine. Replicate this distinctive and celebrated stitch and add a hand-stitched touch to any project with a machine that is truly the first of its kind.
I’ve been doing some kind of sewing for as long as I could hold a needle and thread. My first experience with a Sashiko- like stitch was on my Grandma’s quilts. For anyone who has seen the hand-stitching technique known as Sashiko, you’ll be amazed that there’s a machine that can replicate this distinctive stitch. This sweet, simple, but elegant stitch can embellish almost anything. From garments to home décor to quilting – once I get started with this machine I can’t stop!
