Sashiko stitching is so lovely. Will you be trying this? A woman in my town displayed her sashiko work at our local library. I iked it very much.
beautiful kimonos. looks like an interesting book.
I had a love affair with sashiko and twisted it little for my needs (you may have seen it). Do you know this site? It is a gallery in New York and shows traditional Japanese textiles: http://threads.srithreads.com
