Jennifer Lee from Red Thread Studio
Inspired from watching her Grandma quilt and crochet when she was a girl, she has always loved to make things with her hands. Jennifer likes to learn new techniques and skills but don't always have the time to sit down and sew on her machine.
Enter sashiko or Japanese embroidery and English paper piecing! Be it football practice or dance lessons, these mobile stitch crafts allow Jennifer to feed her passion for creating even when she is on the go.
There is an old Chinese proverb that says an invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstances. The thread may stretch or tangle but will never break.
At Red Thread Studio, Jennifer hopes to connect with you and to inspire you with her passion of all things stitched. She invites you to join her on her journey as Jennifer explores the art of quilting and needlework and connect with other stitch craft enthusiasts to find inspiration around the globe.
Where will your Red Threads lead you?
with Jennifer Lee
Sashiko is a form of decorative reinforcement stitching or functional embroidery from Japan. In this introductory workshop to hand
Sashiko, students will learn about the history of Sashiko and the basic supplies needed to stitch this unique style. Jen will also show you how to work the stitch and transfer designs as well as discuss its application for big stitch hand quilting. Students will start to stitch a pre-printed panel that can be finished at home as a pillow, purse, quilt block or more! Stitchers beware….Sashiko is addictive!
