Culture Club: Coaster Sashiko Sampler

We'd gladly get our craft on with the Coaster Sashiko Sampler ($26). With two specialty needles, coaster squares, and English instructions, we're ready to stitch elegant designs to decorate our coffee table. White embroidery on navy - so crisp for summer.

Wondering what the hell sashiko is? Simply put, it's traditional Japanese embroidery. While many patterns are derived from Chinese designs, Hokusai's 1824 book, New Forms for Design, had a huge influence on the native Buddhist developments in the quilting art form. For more patterns, check out the Purl Bee sashiko tutorial.
