Where did you learn your textile skills?

Is there anything else you'd like other members of Stitchin' Fingers to know about you? Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.

My main interests just now are sashiko stitching and Japanese patchwork, and I own a design business and on line retail store which focus on these.
Hi Susan, welcome to stitchin Fingers. Thank you for your contribution to the Festival of Needles discussion. I have read a few articles about Hari-Kuyo but I think this is the nicest one. I have read it before but could not find it again so I am thrilled that you thought to copy it.
