A few interested individuals gathered on Saturday, April 14, in Saskatoon for a mini star book workshop led by Cathryn Miller.

A good time was had by all, and participants each went home with three different star books.

Special thanks to Leona for sharing her studio space with us.

The Bindings Book Swap

Participants in the Bindings Book Swap met in the Town Hall in Davidson on February 17, 2018 to exchange their books. Each individual had prepared a different binding style and a set of instructions on how it was made. Here are just a few quick snapshots from the morning.

After lunch, there was a short show-and-tell session. Works displayed included a large tunnel book by Barbara Mader called Summer Suppers which can be viewed by opening a small set of church doors at one end,

and some interlocked accordions made by participants in Martha Cole’s recent Accordion Workshop.
