  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

    1. Oh Good! Looking forward to meeting you!
