Happy Friday + More Art Walk Sneak Peeks

Happy Friday! A few more sneak peeks…I’ve hung all the artwork at Drygoods Design, and I really like how they look in the space. It was too dark to get photos of them in situ, but I will try to snag some pix in the next couple of days. There are 12 pieces in total and I took some pictures of them before taking them to the studio/shop.

This one is my absolute favorite. It’s called “wabi-sabi“. It took a million years to stitch, and the metallic linen is amazing – I love the textures of all the elements together. It’s not big (the fabric portion is about 7 inches x 7 inches), and so the stitches are minuscule. Here’s a straight on shot:

All proceeds will be donated to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund. I realize my little art show is not going to raise very much, but I wanted to contribute in some way. “Sashiko” means “little stabs” and was traditionally used to repair worn fabric. I wanted my creations to reflect a sense of mending, of stitching together, of reinforcing strength through small measures.

Have a lovely weekend, friends! The Art Walk is from 6-9pm this Saturday, January 12th. I will be there from about 6-7pm. If you are in the Seattle area, or know of people who might want to check out my stuff, please spread the word.

**Update: I just found out that owner Keli at Drygoods Design posted a very sweet promo for the show and my blog here. You can also see another little sneak peek.**

    Sanae, what a beautiful gesture. And I just love the double entendre of using a “mending stitch” to show love to a community in need of just that. And your work is breathtaking. So happy for you:) May the show go well – wish I could attend!

  4. Thank you for the supportive words, everyone!

  5. i love your work as much as the thought behind it.
