• Increasing project difficulty levels satisfy both novices and experienced sashiko stitchers
• Photos of vintage pieces, many rarely seen outside museums, showcase the craft's origins in northern Japan
• For ongoing reference and use, includes one of the most extensive libraries of traditional kogin and hishizashi pattern templates to be found anywhere (80 and 200 templates, respectively)
