I'd love to get together for coffee when you get back

Hi there Anaka - welcome back, I hope your wedding was fantastic.
I am just here on a four-week trial/consulting basis --I haven't accepted the job at this time. Sent you a private e-mail as well.

So you got the job and you made the move to DC?! Congratulations and hope everything turns out to be more promising than you expect.

Hi Karen - thank you so much! I heard it was 16 inches in Boulder, and treacherous on the roads. I live in Niwot, actually, with Niwot's Curse in full effect. Maybe we can have coffee when I return.
Jude - sorry you won't be down this way. Yes, the book is beautiful, very inspiring. You would like it as you undertake your refashioning experiments.

I love your blog. I see that you're from Boulder...I'm from Erie. You're missing out on 12 inches of snow today!

i had plans to drive down to dc this weekend but life got in the way. this book looks great. i love details.

Oh that book looks wonderful. I'm glad you're enjoying walking DC - it is a great city and the museums are so worth it. My favorite is the Renwick, but I have walked waaay out of the way to visit the Textile Museum and enjoyed it.

I don't always comment... but you are never disappointing to me!
I have found wonderful articles, links to other blogs and so much interesting info here. I'm quiet, but I'm appreciative!

    Slow Cloth offers the quality of meditation or contemplation in the process.
  • Skill
    Slow Cloth involves skill and has the possibility of mastery.

  • Materials
    Slow Cloth is thoughtful in its use of materials and respects their source.
  • Quality
    Slow Cloth artists, designers, crafters and artisans want to make things that last and are well-made.
  • Beauty
    It's in the eye of the beholder, yes, but it's in our nature to reach for beauty and create it where we can.
  • Community
    Slow Cloth supports community by sharing knowledge and respecting relationships.
  • Expression
    Slow Cloth is expressive of individuals and/or cultures. The human creative force is reflected and evident in the work.
