Thank you for registering the Sashiko Core & Essence Class in QuiltCon 2023. I am very much looking forward to meeting you & sharing our Sashiko. Please read this page carefully to maximize your workshop experience with getting this special package.
You can read full description of what you can expect for Sashiko Workshop QuiltCon 2023 on the webpage I prepared.
*This is a special package for the "Sashiko Workshop: Core & Essence" in QuiltCon 2023. Please purchase this set only when you have a registration confirmation from the QuiltCon 2023 Administration. We prepare only right amount of sets for the QuiltCon 2023. If we end up learning that you purchase the kit without joining the QuiltCon, Upcycle Stitches will reserve a right to charge the difference to the full-price of the package. The actual shipment will be made after January 23th 2023, to avoid the holiday shipping season. If you live outside of the U.S., please choose the option to get the package in Atlanta.
*If you are not 100% sure the participation, please make a purchase and choose an option to receive it on site before the workshop.
*If you are traveling to QuiltCon internationally, please choose an option to receive it on site.
*For those who wish to learn Sashiko from me but unable to join the QuiltCon 2023, please consider the Online Sashiko Class, which includes all of the materials for the workshop (the same contents).
QuiltCon 2023 and Sashiko
I am very excited, and honored, to be a part of the world-known quilting event, QuiltCon 2023 in Atlanta, Geogia. All of the participants of the class, "Sashiko Workshop: Core & Essence", are required to purchase this supply set. The set includes all of the necessary & unique materials for the workshop.
Please choose how you would like to receive the package. Since I will have only 1 hour to prepare the workshop, I prefer you to receive the package at your home address before the workshop and bring them to the workshop with you. It will help me to feel easy in preparing the workshop on 2/23 & 2/24. With thanking you to reduce my anxiety, I will cover the shipping fee for the package (US Domestic Only).
Available Options on how to receive the package
Ship to your home before QuiltCon 2023. *Atsushi will cover the shipping fee to avoid the hassle right before the workshop. This Option is available until the end of January 19th, 2023. If your shipping address is outside of the U.S., please choose the option (2).
Get a package right before the workshop you registered. Please bring a claim ticket to get a package on site - As much as I would love to remember your name & face, an hour preparation time can be a quite hassle. I will know who you are by the end of the workshop. The claim ticket will be sent to your email address before the workshop. It would be very helpful to know which date you are participating. So, please choose the date, either (2)-Thu for Thursday 2/23 or (3)-Fri for Friday 2/24, to participate into the Sashiko: Core & Essence Class.
I am happy to bring any other orders you may want to purchase extra with me to QuiltCon 2023 to save shipping fee. If you choose option (1) to receive package at home, I am happy to combine the order. Please use this coupon (HEZIKEBZJZB0) to avoid the extra shipping fee.
*The package of the set is about letter size package (11" x 8.5" x 2"). It is not bulky -it is fabric, thread, and needles. Please check with your Airline if needles are okay to carry on to the plane.
*For those who would like to receive the supply set right before the workshop, I will make a shipment to Atlanta Conventional Center so you can pick up the package right before the workshop.
[What is included in a set]
1 skein of White Sashiko thread, 145 meters
1 Sashiko thimble
3 Sashiko needles
Indigo Dye Fabrics, Cotton 100% Woven in Japan, with the pattern printed on for the workshop, with other sample fabric to make a tote bag.
1 x Thread bobbin Paper
1 x Chalk Pencil
1 x Surprise item

2 x threader
[Additional Tools We Use in the Workshop]
We use fabric scissors and Scotch tape to teach how to keep the Sashiko thread in a good shape. We use them only once in the workshop, yet they are necessary. Any fabric scissors & tapes would be fine and there are enough scissors in the QuiltCon room.
Fabric Scissors (QuiltCon will have them there)
Scotch Tape (QuiltCon will have them there)
More Threaders (for those who need assistance in threading the needle - I will share some tricks as well).
One of the requests I have received in the previous Quiltcon was the information about the Other Recommended Sashiko Tools & Supplies. I made a item page with a list of tools & supplies that I recommend (but we will NOT use in the workshop). I will mention about them in the workshop to maximize the Sashiko experience after the workshop. They are recommended to have if you plan to continue enjoying the Sashiko we practice. Also, please check our articles & videos for the supplies & Tools.
*This additional Tools are NOT required in the QuiltCon 2023 Sashiko Workshop: Core & Essence.
