BOOKLIST (American Library Association)

“Blue and white dominate the color palette for traditional Japanese sashiko, a running-stitch embroidery known for its sharp geometric designs. Meaning “little stabs,” sashiko was primarily used to mend clothing items decoratively. Now, as sashiko artist Sashikonami shows us, anything goes, especially when it comes to color (though materials tend to stick to linens and cottons). The author’s distinctive sobriquet (also her Instagram handle) indicates a fascination with the craft. She begins her text with 47 designs—persimmons, coins, flowers—applied to small items like coasters, washcloths, and mini-totes, that will give beginners immediate gratification. Many U.S. readers/crafters might find the layout somewhat unfamiliar, as patterns lead, followed by a workbook (the how-tos), design charts, and then directions for finishing the different projects. Pair with a title like Susan Briscoe’s The Ultimate Sashiko Sourcebook, more styled for American audiences, for maximum, colorful sashiko fun”. — Barbara Jacobs
