"One of the wonderful things about sashiko is that you don't have to buy lots of tools and materials. The essentials are just a needle, thread, and fabric. You can take it with you wherever you travel without the need for frames and hoops - a small pouch or drawstring bag can hold hours of sewing." Jill Clay writes in the beginning of her new book Sashiko. This book includes 20 new and unique sashiko projects and loads of information about transferring designs, basic tools and supplies, and pattern library. Projects include greeting cards, needle case, book cover, Japanese-bound book, scarfs, and a Japanese cross-over apron, just to name a few.
