Learn to knit and learn to Boro!

After a bit of a lapse in concentration I am starting my blog again on a weekly basis.

Firstly let’s say I am still madly in love with knitting and continue this passion on a daily basis.

However, after a trip to Japan in 2018, I can honestly say that the Boro, Chiku Chiku, Sashiko hand sewing techniques, I saw and learnt whilst both in Japan and since in Australia have taken over all my spare time! It is so addictive!

Pics are attached.

I will be running some beginner workshops starting in the second term of 2019.

more to come.

Our Thursday class is still running from 10-4. We sew and knit and solve the problems of the world!

Everyone welcome!
