TESTIMONIALS
This is a fabulous course. I had little experience and learned so much.
Tina
I want to thank you for a thoroughly delightful day being introduced to the art of Boro rice bag making.
I have spent the better part of my waking hours since Thursday stitching, contemplating, evaluating, adorning, and ultimately completing my bag this morning. These have been utterly tranquil hours. I think it is the combination of creating a pleasing composition, the focus and repetition of stitching, the  knowledge that each recycled material has a history, the invitation to fine-tune and personalise with adornments, and the joy of creation that made this such a rewarding experience.
It was a pleasure to meet you and exchange ideas.
Robin
Thanks for a wonderful day Rhonda! Very proud of my Boro bag! I’ve definitely been bitten.
Sylvia
Many thanks for the apron workshop on Saturday – I really enjoyed it.
Please put me on the wait list for the December workshop.
Marilyn
Just a big thank you for your time, skill, taste and patience, all given freely at your engrossing workshop.
I would love to attend more in the future.
