Immerse yourself in the secret world of Sashiko. Sashiko, an old Japanese tradition that emerged over a thousand years ago. The sewing world has never seen anything like this: the baby lock Sashiko is a machine that imitates this hand stitching. It uses an unusual technique to produce stitches that look as if they were made by hand on your fabric.
The Japanese word sashiko means "little stabs" and refers to the small stitches used in this form of needlework. This style of embroidery and the "sashiko stitch" was used to reinforce or repair worn fabric or tears with patches, making the darned piece ultimately stronger and warmer.
