Class Description:

Summer Book Camp…..Chrissie Hines returns this month with her ever popular “Book Camp.” Join us for this two-day event and make 6 books in two days. This workshop will have you learning the classic Long Stitch binding. This stitch is the quickest, most basic, and classic of book binding stitches. Practice makes progress book binding will no longer be intimidating. By the end of your camp experience you will have conquered this skill and have the confidence to step up your game and continue this art form on your own. Whether you use them as art journals, planners, or sketch books, journals are certainly on trend. Chrissie will have you “cranking out” your own personal collection. These books make great gifts, too.
