We’re so very proud to be hosting an exhibition of Sashiko and Boro work by Keiko Futatsuya.
It will be happening at the Indigo Niche stand —Stand A11— at the upcoming Adelaide Craft and Quilt Fair, November 3rd to 6th.
Along with her company Sashi.co, Keiko Futatsuya works out of the little town of Takayama, (which we were lucky enough to visit last year). For over thirty years, she has plied her craft as a world-renowned producer, designer and teacher of sashiko. Additionally, she formulates unique batches of vegetable dyes for sashiko thread, which we proudly supply.They’re gorgeous and you can view the threads here.
Our exhibit of her work takes in a stunning range of sashiko and boro work that includes traditional coats, vests, and jackets, as well as tapestry, bags and boro pieces. This is a rare opportunity for you to see some work from a true master of the craft.

A very small number of items will be on sale—enquire at A11 for further information.
I have just starting to try sashiko. I love the way it looks on quilts and clothes. I am home alot due to the covid quarantine. So this is what I am trying to learn during this time.
I also like the look of Boro stitching which I came across while looking for different sites of Sashiko. Hopefully in time I will
Be able to master this stitching.
I live in Texas just so you know I will not be able to take any classes from you but hopefully through the internet I will be to learn what I need.
That’s wonderful, Jennifer. You will adore it in the months and years to come.
