Sashiko is a form of Japanese folk embroidery using the basic running stitch to create a patterned background. The geometric patterns include straight or curved lines of stitching arranged in a repeating pattern. The Japanese word sashiko means little stabs and refers to the small stitches used in this form of needlework. Originally, sashiko was used as a form of darning to repair or add strength to worn areas of clothing, but now has become an art form, very popular with quilters.
