Sashiko At The Stitchin' Post
Yesterday, I took at class to learn the techniques of Sashiko Quilting at the Stitchin' Post in Sisters, Oregon. I love the format of the small technique classes they have set up for us with short attention spans! The class was from 10:00 - 12:30, which leaves lots of time for shopping! The class was full and everyone was eager to learn the new technique. There is nothing better than a short class, a professor who knows what they are talking about and a bathroom near by!
I came away from class with exactly what I wanted to learn. Now I will begin to tackle a Sashiko project which I began back in the late 1990's...oh yeah...I am talking back over a decade ago! I purchased it from "In The Beginning" which was a quilt store in Seattle, Washington which no longer is opened!
The Stitchin' Post is always a visual feast and Twigs, their home decor area was filled with new items. I did not purchase any fabric...but I did find something I had to have over in Twigs. Take a peek at the slide show and you'll see what I bought!
