Over the years, I have collected many books by this fine artist who also happens to be my daughter. I have journals, datebooks, photo albums, book art. They are carefully wrapped in tissue and stored on my bookshelf.
"Use them!" she says each time she sees them. But I can't bear to.
When my youngest sister turned a certain milestone age, all the women in my family gathered at my house for a spa weekend. We pampered ourselves, laughed, enjoyed each others' company. As part of the activities of the weekend, my daughter led us all in a bookbinding class and everyone took home a beautiful little masterpiece! She was a patient and knowledgeable teacher.
On July 21, she will lead a beginning bookbinding class for six lucky people. If you're interested, please email me.
If you want to see more of her books and get an idea of what you'll take away from the class, please visit her website Rockpile Bindery.
