The history of Sashiko is similar to that of the old traditional British Gansey, where a fisherman's origin could be identified from the clothes he was wearing. Such is the same principal of Sashiko which means "Rice Stitch" where various villages had their own Sashiko design usually in indigo.
The Specialist needle has an open eye which is closed every other stitch and when it enters the fabric open it comes back up with the thread, stitches a stitch ans simultaneously drops the thread to skip the next. The stitches can be adjusted anywhere between 2mm and 5mm this relates to the length of the stitch itself or the gap size between stitches. This allows you to create perfectly measured sashiko designs time and time again. With a huge 230mm throat space you can easily quilt with the Baby lock sashiko.
