Boro (Chiku-Chiku) Workshop
Chiku-Chiku in Japanese translates into big stitch. Students will learn how to layer old and new Asian fabrics on to a background to create a organic base for big stitch quilting. Scrap fabrics work best, even fabric with holes! Nothing is wasted. This workshop is for everyone. It will all be done by hand, no sewing machines needed. Its easy, no rules, and you can use all of those scraps!

The traditional Japanese technique of sashiko, hand-sewn quilting along with it's history will be taught in this class. Along with my easy marking ideas for fast projects, we will discuss whether or not to sandwich. Two-three small pieces can be finished in class. 2 hours
