Do any of you do sashiko by hand? if so what is the difference between Japan thread ( expensive to buy) and two or three strands of embroidery thread? When I see pictures of sashiko stitches I can't tell any difference. I taught myself to do this stitch
I am embroidering on a sweatshirt for my daughter and it is sew hard to get it all under the (E) Machine. How it you all do this? I ending up taking off the band around the bottom and then putting it back on.
