    Dear Karren,
    Congratulations for a well deserved award! I’m so glad I found your blog, as you have been an inspiration to me. I had been experimenting with shibori for about three or four months, when I bought your book. Your explanations were the key to unlock the techniques I was trying to achieve. I have much to learn, but your work is such an inspiration, such art to aspire to. Thanks for so generously sharing your talents!

    Wow! Well done. How do you find out about events like this? We don’t have anything like it in the UK, unfortunately.


  6. Congratulations on the award! I think the outfit is gorgeous. It is unique, very flattering, and such a fitting name – “Copper Tails”! This is something I could definitely picture myself wearing. Thanks for the inspiration 😉

    Thanks! I don’t think FIBERARTS has any plans to publish it, but it would be nice wouldn’t it?
