  1. Hi robin... Been a long time since I took your tassel doll class at ArtFiberFest in 2005... I ended up making the biggest tassel with the Face and still get complements on it hanging in my living room. Since I now have lupus and other stuff I am longer able to travel to any classes.... am wondering do you teach the Bohmian Chic class on line anywhere? That purse is so awesome!!!
