May 17/19. In an effort to get caught up with 'behind the scenes' work, from May 24 to 28 I will be not be picking up emails. Orders made during that time will be mailed out May 29th. Thank you for your understanding :-) Susan
I've replaced our Boro kit with two Boro kit options. Both kits now include needles. The difference between them is the amount of fabric and thread included in the package. The fabric pieces in the both kits are Japanese dyed yarn fabrics in assorted colors and textures and Japanese momen indigo blue fabrics with traditional Japanese Wagara designs. I've picked them to coordinate with each other, and to create a 'traditional' mood in you finished Boro piece, but note that the fabrics may not be exactly the ones shown here. The will be the same quality and fabric types, and similar in colors.
Choose: Boro Starter Kit 1 or Boro Starter Kit 2 when placing your order.
