  1. Jody, I was just looking through your site and came across your retreat in Taos next September. It looks amazing! It's also already full, with a wait list, which doesn't surprise me :). I hope you're doing well and would love to take another class with you some day. Your boro book class at Squam in June was such a treat. Lisa

    1. Hi Lisa. It would have been great to have you in my Taos co-teach class. I'm also going to be at Arrowmont in June 2017 so keep an eye out for that.

    2. Arrowmont! Oh my! I can get there and it is a wonderful setting. What is the title/content of your session?

    3. Called the Boro Aesthetic and working on transforming old garments into art pieces - and I mean totally transforming - as in a garment into a wall piece or a book or sculptural item. And, utilizing Japanese mending techniques. It should be on the site soon.

  2. Registered for the Arrowmont Class! Can't wait

  3. Hello Jody,
    I really enjoyed the workshop last Saturday. Boro fascinates me. Mistakenly, I walked off with a spool of pearl cotton, sky blue in color. I need to reimburse you for it or send it back to you.

  4. Oh gosh - don't worry about it - it happens. Consider it a gift - maybe pay it forward someday! Enjoyed having you in the class! -jody
