GET SCHOOLED: free bookbinding workshop with the t.o. church of craft


Here's an invitation to bind from Sister Leah, Reverend Mother of our beloved Toronto Church of Craft (and profesh bookbinder):




Don't be fooled by the balmy weather - you'll be begging for a new indoor activity for February, so why not start a publishing empire!

Learn to stitch a no-glue, multiple-signatured book in just a couple of hours.

Cover and textblock paper will be available, but you are more than welcome to bring your own papers and personalize your new work.

Other tools you could bring if you've got 'em:
bone folder
awl
ruler
cutting mat
x-acto knife
scissors

This might be the ever fun and ever reliable 'button-hole' stitch book, but I haven't completely decided.

This all goes down in Parkdale's craftiest corner: the workroom - 1340 Queen St. W. on Sunday, January 20 at 1pm.

In craft, Leah

Just show up! Coming earlier than later means you get the instructions from the beginning and aren't lost.
