Sashiko Quilt Project: 2 New Workshops

We’re adding two new workshops in April for those interested in contributing to the Sashiko Quilt Project. Nell Coleman is leading the project to increase awareness of the museum, build volunteer support, and link staff and TMC Volunteers. Once the quilt is completed it will be offered to the museum for fundraising.

Sashiko is a style of embroidery that uses a white running stitch on an indigo background. The motifs in the squares are based on traditional Japanese designs that symbolize nature and village life. The fabric and thread for the quilt were sourced from Japan.

About 130 squares are needed to create a quilt. Almost two-thirds are now completed. Museum staff, TMC Volunteers and family and friends, have worked on squares during four workshops held this past fall and winter.
