Coasters are a great way to get started with Sashiko, a popular and simple embroidery technique from Japan. With just a single stitch, Sashiko is easy to learn and relaxing to do. The kits come with everything you need, along with English instructions, so they are perfect for beginners.
Hitomezashi is a form of Sashiko stitching that features dense patterns that almost resemble weaving patterns. Like other forms of Sashiko, Hitomezashi uses a simple running stitch to create the repeating patterns.
