A practical handicraft book that explains how to sew Japanese "sashiko" patterns for celebration and prayer.

In the past, it was customary for mothers in Japan to give their daughters an embroidered cloth for their wedding. Japanese mothers would embroider various prayer patterns on a cotton cloth to wish for their daughters' happiness.

In this book, author Hiroko Kondo, who continues to pass on her handiwork to the next generation, teaches us the 29 secret methods of embroidery. With color photos and illustrations, Kondo explains everything in an easy-to-understand manner, from fabric preparation to basic stitching and finishing.
