The Pittsburgh Craft Collective is hosting a Supply Swap at the Squirrel Hill Library on January 31st from 4:00 5:00 pm.

If you have left over arts and crafts supplies taking up space in your house, here is your chance to recycle them!

Never got the hang of a certain craft, but still have all the supplies? Trade them in for something else.

Just want to get rid of all those beads or fiber or fabric? Donate them to the swap and maybe someone else can do something with them!

9  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Books! Wallpaper, german maps, postcards and fabric! :) on: November 07, 2007 12:20:50 PM
wow! those turned out really well.  Smiley  i am glad that you liked the tutorial on how to make them. they look good in fabric too!

How did you bind these? Did you sew them or use glue?


the technique is called a pamphlet stitch. it's the most basic of the bookbinding techniques. it will take you the good part of a week to do alone (not sure with help) because you have to punch the holes and then stitch them. and your fingers might get a little sore.

can you just collate them and have it stapled in two spots? that might be the cheapest option! particularly since your time is money too.
