The One with the Coptic Bookbinding Class QUESTIONNAIRE (with Giveaway!)

Thursday, November 5, 2015

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who responded so far! I've decided to do a "soft launch" and the class in now available in my etsy shop for $15. This is for those of you who already have supplies on hand and are anxious to start making books, perhaps as presents for Christmas! I also have wooden covers for sale for $8 a pair in my etsy shop. The kits will be coming hopefully in early December and that is when I will make the big announcement about the class :) I will continue to read your comments and take them to heart and choose a winner on the 14th! Thank you thank you!


Ladies and gents. I am sooooo excited. I'm finally doing an online coptic bookbinding class! It's also the very first class that I'm releasing on my own and it'll be available for purchase in my etsy shop.

I've been working really hard on it for awhile and now I have some questions. I'd LOVE your feedback and to entice you to help me with this little big project, I will randomly choose one person from the comments to receive the class AND a kit, for FREE!! How 'bout that?!

1. What do you think is a reasonable price for the class?
It will be available in my etsy shop and once purchased you will receive a document to download which includes the intro, link to the video (it's over an hour from start-to-finish!), supplies (with links of where to buy them), written instructions, creative option ideas, and a closure.

2. When should the class launch - now (without kits) or later (with kits)?
I am wanting to have kits for sale to go along with the class, BUT, I don't have those kits yet and it'll probably be another month or so before I do. Should I launch the class now, or wait until I have the kits? You don't need a kit to do the class, you can find the supplies elsewhere, I'm just thinking it would be nice to have some things all in one little package.

3. How much should the kits be?
The kits will include 12 double-sided patterned papers trimmed to size (so it can fit in a smaller box and making shipping internationally much more affordable!), a curved needle, a skein of coordinating thread, a pack of ephemera (for decorating the cover and making charms), a handful of charms (such as pearls, jewels, and sequins), drilling and piercing templates, and a pair of 5x7" wooden covers.

4. Anything else you'd like to add/say/questions/comments/concerns?
I'd love to know what you're thinking or any suggestions or what you're wanting to learn, etc!

Here is a short preview:


That's all for now, just four questions! I'll randomly choose one commenter to receive a kit and the class for FREE and announce that winner on Saturday November 14th! Thanks so much for your help!
