Hello

I think is my first post on this board!  On Thursday I was lucky enough to go to a journal making workshop & had a go at making an A5 notebook, with a padded cover & coptic binding.  And now, well I think I just want to make more - I am smitten!  Cheesy

Beautiful!!  Was learning the coptic binding hard?  I've looked a bit online but it may be the sort of thing you need to learn in person.  It looks so nice!

Ooh, this is very cool!  I love the buttons and the fabric you chose.  Where'd you take the class?

I had a very good tutor, the true test to see how difficult it is will be when I attempt it on my own!!!
