It's hard to believe, but we're now less than two months away from the start of a new year. If you haven't found a new calendar for 2024, you're in luck because Dolores Guffey has one for us to make. This structure is an accordion variation where the pages are sewn together rather than folded upon themselves. Calendar pages will be provided, but you are welcome to make the structure without them and use your own artwork and/or content. Please notice in the photos that there are several ways for the pages to be sewn together.
