   Zen for hand-quilters
Just about everything you could want to get strung in sashiko embroidery. It is more than quilting! This guide will be your swimming instructor - lifeguardcompass! Glad to have bought a copy ''. Combined with Amish quilt patterns - what a hoot!
   Great for beginners, and for reference!
I was a complete beginner to sashiko before reading it, and I read this book cover to cover before sewing my first stitch. It is quite a learning curve! The author does an amazing job in offering solutions for common problems and even details on how to keep stitches neatly consistently. Good reading!
   Susan Briscoe Rocks
If you love Japanese quilting methods, patterns or just pure quilting delight, this author never fails to satisfy. I have all her books and refer back to each as projects come to mind. The art of Sashiko is one that looks beautiful and if there was anyone I trust to teach this technique, it is the author of this gorgeous book.
   Beautifully Illustrated
Beautiful and engaging representation of this needlework takes the U.S. by storm. Basic stitching required a little attention to the stitch length and also the length of the space between stitches. The book includes many and varied projects to apply sashiko and a pattern library. I like that patterns that include curves are notated with a separate pattern for the curve, which helped me make smooth curves as a beginner. I recommend this book to be added on this Japanese stitching technique to your growing library.
   Is this the Best Embroidery Book Ever?
Although I have been doing embroidery for over forty years, I had never come across Sashiko. It clearly explains the origins of Sashiko, with many scene-changing photos. The transparent patterns are many, many, along with ideas for use. There is literally nothing left to do, but try it. If you want to get all the information you need about Sashiko in a book only, this book has it all.
   Great inspiration for art quilts
I create art quilts so that I wanted to learn about the different patterns I might incorporate into my work. Don 't think it's likely I 'll create dedicated sashiko works, but am greatly inspired by pattern ideas. Wonderful illustrations and clear directions are provided.
   Disappointing for a novice
For a novice, disappointing. References Kakehari, a sewing clamp, with a picture of the clamp partially hidden by the cloth. No discussion about how to use it. Good book for those who are familiar with art and want lots of patterns.
   Wonderful crafting book
Such a good intro to Sashiko instructions are clear and address the small mistakes that beginners would likely make. With this purchase, I am very happy!
   Very clear instructions
I have long wanted to try Sashiko embroidery, but was not sure exactly how to do it. This book provides step-by-step instructions and pictures which are so clear that I look forward to getting started! I like the projects and also that all my questions were covered within the book.
   Buy the print version!
Concise, Informative sourcebook for Ashiko. However, if you're the type that likes to examine illustrations closely, buy it in print. Originally, I bought the book in Kindle format, but was disappointed in the resolution of the images, especially since I wanted to examine the tiny stitches closely. Since the informational content is excellent, I bought the bullet and bit the print version too.
