In this three-hour workshop, you have the opportunity to make one pincushion Akiko designed using Japanese cotton and special Sashiko thread dyed in Niigata, Japan. You will be surprised to find out what she uses to fill the pincushion. This is the first time for Akiko to offer the unique "Chiku Chiku" workshop in the United States. Her works have appeared in many venues throughout Japan since 2006. In addition, she has been invited to hold workshops and exhibits in Nantou, France (2014) and Brisbane and Adelaide, Australia (2015). Since 2015, an Australian group of Chiku Chiku stitchers make their pilgrimage to Niigata, Japan, on a regular basis where Akiko holds workshops.
