January Workshop: Expandable Journal

A Cross Structure Binding taught by Dolores Guffey

Journal by Dolores Guffey
This journal allows you the flexibility to add and/or delete signatures at will, because each signature is individually sewn onto the straps and not attached to any other signature. The covers are made of Tyvek which you will paint at the workshop. The painted Tyvek has a leather-like appearance; the color choice will be yours.
