In this interactive class we will practice and learn about meditation, mindfulness and stitching!
We start out with a mindful meditation and then take that concept into stitching. Each stitch will represent our breath, mantra or an intention.
How does mindfulness relate to stitching? It is stitching that has intention. Stitching with intention is called Sashiko. This is the description for the stitches used in Boro fabrics.
In this class Michelle will teach her stylised method of Boro stitching with mindfulness. In essence we will be meditative stitching. We will be using upcycled fabrics that you have on hand.
Craft and Chat will resume in Jan. 2021
The idea is that you make something (knit, crochet, quilt, stitch...) and at the same time connect via video chat to others making something. Dedicate time to craft and connect. All crafters welcome. You only need your own materials and a smartphone, tablet or computer with a camera.
All levels welcome!

Teaching classes inspired by Japanese Boro cloth. Sustainability. Visible Mending. Wellness. Vintage Japanese fabrics.
Sustainability out of necessity.
Boro, a Japanese word meaning broken. Boro fabric has evolved from Northern Japan farmers created astonishing textiles out of rags using only what they already had.
In my courses students will review a history of Boro, learn patching, collaging and stitching techniques to mend and repair your own garment or piece of cloth or create something new.
We will discuss trending movements such as visible mending, sustainability and wellness.
Students will have access to my vintage Japanese fabrics.
