New workshop posted - Intro to Bookbinding in May!

I am pleased to share that I will be offering a bookbinding class at the Merrimac Public Library on May 23, 6:30-8:30pm. Join me to make a few unique items for gifts or to use yourself.

I love working in my handmade journals as sketchbooks, for memory keeping, and for visual journals. At this class I will share examples of how I use the journals we will be making. The first is a simple pamphlet single signature booklet where the cover is just slightly heavier material than the inside pages. This will help you to get comfortable with the materials. Our second project will use old book covers and a long stitch method to bind unique papers into the already existing hard cover binding. I learned about this long stitch method from Vanessa Oliver-Lloyd through her Bookbinding class offered by Get Messy, and I think you will love it as much as I do.

No experience is necessary and all materials will be provided- what could be easier! If you are at all interested check it out on my workshop page at my website and register today!
