Learning Something New

Today, I learned to make two kinds of books. Both are manuscript books- the kind you make and then  add things to, like text and images.

It felt odd sewing paper instead of fabric. Did you know paper, like fabric, has a grain?

Rose Newlove teaches for CBBAG, the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild. She was patient and full of great information.

I learned book terminology and 2 ways of binding a book. I learned about paper and tools.

My teacher explains the tools for bookbinding.

This class was a make-up class because I was away when the classes started. (thanks Rose!!) Tomorrow, I jump in with the rest of the students and make another type of manuscript book. I am really looking forward to it!

  1. Love CBBAG & love Rose! I took a course with her on fabric covered books - I tried to combine quilting and book-binding as well. Made two little books - one covered in silk and one covered in velvet.
