Teachers Class 2018 Registration is open!

Dear <<First Name>> <<Last Name>>


Teachers Class 2018 schedule: October 22-25, 2018
(Optional stitching day: October 26, 2018)


New phase 8 fuzzy effect technique theme "Kemari" 

The new design is inspired by a black, formal kimono, named “Spring of Kemari”, which was created a long time ago by Master Iwao Saito. Kemari is a ball game that was popular among nobles during the Heian Period. The ball or footbag is considered an elegant motif, which is used for kimono and obi. You might find it is interesting to see kemari among other formal motifs such as cypress fans, drums, noble carts, phoenix, cranes, etc. We will reveal the history behind the kemari this fall. 

Fuzzy effect is applied on many varieties of designs, and we would like to explain its character, the basic techniques, as well as its creative aspects. We will also display kimono and obi examples that were stitched in the past. 

Please note that tentative thread set will be posted as soon as it is available. Also, finalized thread set and boxchart will be available during the class. 



During the class, we will also be mentioning about the guidance for class operation and future teaching materials.

Please look forward to it!

Advanced Class 2019 is Open as well!

We are excited to announce the theme of the 2019 Advanced Class is “Reminiscences of Battle”.
It has been proposed by several Nuido members, who wish to honor great teachers, as well as members who have been in the “battle“ or long journey as stitchers, and as people confronting ordeals in life.

I hope this class will provide a good opportunity to study the place of gunbai in Japanese history, and experiment with traditional techniques used for this particular design. Very importantly, we wish to honor each stitcher for her/his accumulated endeavors in life.

Advanced Class 2019 schedule: March 4-8, 2019

Design: Reminiscence of Battle (Gunbai)

More details of the design will be announced soon, but to reserve your seat, please register now.
