Sewing and Sewing tools are loves of mine. My sewing room is my refuge and favorite place. I dabble in all kinds of Sewing but have always stayed away from hand Sewing because I have no patience for it. But lately I have become fascinated by Kantha quilts, very similar to Japanese Sashiko quilting. Both are running stitches but in Kantha they fill in outlines where as in Sashiko they make up the outline designs. So what a nice surprise to find a chapter in Sewing Happiness on Sashiko quilting. The chapter contains a Mini Sashiko Primer and is just what I needed to start into this technique.
