Yesterday was the first in a planned, ongoing series of workshops called Day in Davidson. All twelve participants were able to attend and had a good time learning to sew longstitch and linkstitch books under the excellent instruction of Susan Mills. Most of this post is pictures of Susan’s hands, as she taught by demonstrating each step of the process. Here are some of Susan’s books to give you an idea of what we were learning.

Learning the steps:
We had a bit of show and tell at lunchtime. Here Kathy Hamre explains the structure of a travel book that she made.
And as a demonstration of the diligence of Susan’s students, here’s a picture of Robin Canham working very hard!
Everyone had a wonderful time. This was a great start to the Day in Davidson series. Thanks to Susan for her excellent instructions and for generously donating the materials for the workshop.
