Bookbinding at Ben Franklin Recap

Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Back in December... :) I taught a bookbinding class at Ben Franklin in Redmond! I grew up in Redmond and went to the BF often, so it was crazy that it all came full circle and I ended up teaching a class there!
Enza Gudor from the Pink Paislee Design Team came, always love seeing her :) 
 And my mom came! Hehe! So fun!
 There were eight students in total and they must have all been super crafty people because we finished about two hours early!
 About halfway done! I didn't take a whole lot of pictures, but enough that I can always remember this fun day of teaching!
 My absolute favorite part of teaching bookbinding workshops is seeing all the books lined up in a row at the end. Even though we all use the same supplies, each gal makes her book different whether through the paint color or embellishments she adds to the binding, the color of thread, etc.
 Be still my heart!
 I'm teaching another bookbinding class this Saturday in Los Gatos, CA and I'm already looking forward to seeing the books all lined up once more!

Also, I do have an online bookbinding class and kits if you're interested in learning how to make these one-of-a-kind books!
Thanks for stopping by!!
