You can learn the traditional Sashiko from the expert no matter where you live. The workshop content is similar to the Sashiko Stitching Workshop, which has been successfully offered in NYC and received so many positive reviews.
In this online workshop, the participant will learn how to make Sashiko stitching more speedy, efficiently and beautifully. Atsushi will teach how to use the Sashiko needle and thimble individually by checking your hands throughout the Web Camera. The participants also learn how to prepare the Sashiko fabric so you can continue the Sashiko journey.
The Workshop goes through the Live Streaming via Google Hangouts. The participants need to be online at the scheduled time. All the time I mention on this page is in the US Eastern Time Zone (EST), New York Time.
Duration: 2 Workshops of 120 minutes each | Total of 4 hours
Required skill: A basic needlework skill & basic drawing skill (such as using a ruler precisely) are required. Please practice to thread the needle before the workshop start if you aren't comfortable with it (or have a threader ready).
Required environment: A decent device with camera (Face-camera and Back Camera), such as a smartphone, tablet, or PC with a Web-Cam, connected to the Internet. Regarding the device, the newer the better, however, iPhone 5S worked okay in the previous Online Video Chat. Please contact me if you have a concern in your preparation with a device.
For maximizing workshop experience, the participants need to show me the posture of stitching and actual stitching.
A tripod or a smartphone stand would be necessary to have.
Web Software: Zoom

In order to register yourself for the Online Sashiko Workshop with the discounted price, please agree with the list below.

Also, you may consider to have the private online workshop for $490.00 (Everything Included).
After the workshop, please leave the review on this product page. (Honest Review is good. You can also send me an email if you prefer that way)
I will introduce how the workshop proceed after the workshop on my website. Please provide me some photos that you may take during or after the workshop.
Please understand the risk of "cancellation" due to the equipment failure or insufficient Internet connection, and Atsushi's personal condition as a stay-at-home father.
Please make sure that you have the best tools available for enjoying the live streaming. Old or insufficient tools, such as an old iPhone, may stress you because of the quality of video. I will not be able to control it on your side.
It is participants' responsibility to follow the emails Atsushi send out and follow the direction.
I will follow-up, and will provide the support until I teach you how to use thimble and needle throughly.
Cancel and Refund Policy
Since this workshop includes a lot of materials delivered to you in prior to the actual workshop, we do not accept the cancellation and refund. Once you arrange the workshop date, please respect us and the others who join the workshop on the same day. In extreme case scenario, I will accept the reschedule of the appointment if the notification is made before 48 hours of actual workshop starting time.
If you need to reschedule the workshop within 48 hours of the workshop starting time, the reschedule fee of $30.00 will be applied.
Any case scenarios of workshop cancellations or errors in our preparation, you will be rescheduled to the future Online Workshop without the extra fee. It is very challenging to teach the workshop I do face to face via Internet.
Your understanding and cooperation would be very much appreciated.
