Brisbane: Kantha / Sashiko

Use basic hand stitching to change the nature of fabric. Create your own beautiful designs based on the meditative process of kantha and sashiko stitching. Your fabric can then be used to create a range of items only limited by your imagination. This is a great opportunity to re-purpose thrifted fabric or to bring new life to your fabric scraps. 

Meet up details

When: Thursday 22 August, 6-8pm

Where: Indooroopilly Library, Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, Level 4, 322 Moggill Road, Indooroopilly
