There's been a tragic fire in our building, currently we have no access to our shop and the stock isn't salvageable. It's early days and we have every hope to return, but this is going to be a long process. Bear with us while we work out where we go from here. Thank you for all your messages, they were lovingly received. Fiona & Marice

Book Binding ~ Special Event 2024 Sat 2/3/24


Email when stock available



Saturday 2nd March, 10am – 12.30pm. (2.5hour session)

A book of one’s own – an introduction to bookbinding that brings together a range of skills for designing, preparing, sewing and filling a unique book. You will learn different techniques for folding and cutting paper, for making pockets and for holding it all together with a selection of hand-sewn bindings. Fill your book photos, mementoes, doodles and further creative ideas as you see a flat sheet of paper evolve into a book of your own.

We are very excited to bring you another traditional craft with the wonderful Lesley Murray, as our special guest skill sharer, to guide you through the book binding process.   This will be a relaxed class, learning a new craft.  Lesley has been teaching bookbinding and other craft workshops for over 20 years and loves binding books to fill with stories, ideas or memorabilia.

Wouldn’t it be fabulous to make one for your sewing project, or to gift along with a sewn item you are making for someone else.
