About the Author

AI Takeda was five years old when she encountered needle and thread. She tagged along with her older sister to her kimono sewing lessons, and the first she she made was an under-kimono. From that day to this, needle, thread, and fabric have been her constant companions, and she looks forward to continuing sashiko needlework for many years to come.

Back Cover Information

Complete step-by-step instructions for tablecloths, cushions, tote bags, aprons, decorative kitchen towels, and more.

Sashiko is a traditional craft that is easily accessible to anyone with needle, thread, and fabric. This type of needlework originated among the common people of Japan and was the great pride of Japanese women. The very word "sashiko" evokes the nostalgic Japanese fondness for the objects of everyday life.
