Japanese Boro is an antique mending method characterized by beautiful, deep, blue indigo fabrics with other pops of color, usually red. Deep in Japanese history, “boro boro” means tattered or worn out and often antique or vintage Boro pieces from Japan are made from mended linens or other household utility textiles.

People are drawn to this mending method and the artistry it evokes because of its rich color, geometric designs, and also that a person could create something beautiful from necessity. This is something quilters and textile artists can uniquely appreciate, given the rich American history of making quilts from scraps or leftovers.

In this class you will learn the history & technique and create your own Boro quilt. You will learn from Tina’s many years following this extraordinary technique & collecting the fabric she used in her very own showcased Boro creation!
