Becky Scellato - Shibori Dragon
My love for Japanese textiles and crafts began in the 1960’s when my father was stationed in the Air Force in Okinawa. I learned sashiko from a Japanese woman over 25 years ago, and fell in love with the craft.
It quickly became an all-consuming passion. Sashiko, an easy embroidery technique using a running stitch, is relaxing and fun, and creates a sense of peace while stitching. Sashiko is elegance in simplicity.
Our business, Shibori Dragon, specializes in Asian fabrics, Japanese textiles and sashiko. I have been teaching and collecting historical sashiko textiles for the past 20 years and have samples dating from the 1800’s to modern day. I love to design and teach, sharing my love of Japanese textiles with my students.
