About Saké Puppets


Welcome to Saké Puppets.  (^_-)-☆

I’m Angela, an embroidery artist in Brooklyn, New York. I learned sashiko while living in Tokyo, when I stumbled into a local textile shop and found a group of genki grandmothers in the back, stitching and gossiping. They welcomed me warmly, taught me how to stitch straight, and sent me home with lunch.

I started this site in 2010 to detail my newfound hobby and handcraft discoveries in Japan. My work has been featured by Better Homes & Gardens, The Japan Times, and Design*Sponge, and I co-wrote the book Tokyo Craft Guide.
