Silke Bosbach shows you how to create 15 stunning embroidery designs which blend modern techniques with the simple and traditional Japanese method of Sashiko. Traditional Sashiko is a simple folk technique originally used for darning. While the conventional craft uses only a basic running stitch to create intricate patterned backgrounds, Silke Bosbach shows you how to adapt this basic style by applying modern surface finishes on numerous textiles and combining it with a variety of other techniques. Explore the fascinating possibilities of these embroidery techniques yourself and be inspired to create your own unique combinations of the modern and traditional!
