Get ready for the autumn sewing season!
Bring in your sewing machine or serger for repair or maintenance during the second half of August, and Carmen will sharpen up to 4 pairs of shears for FREE! (Shear-sharpening usually runs $10-15 per pair, so you could save up to $60!)
Carmen will even sharpen shears with pin-nicks in them. (Many sharpeners will not take scissors that have been damaged by pins!) Read more >
August 29 (Sunday); 10am-3pm
Skill level: Complete novice to advanced crafters — all are welcome!
A blank book or photo album hand-covered by you with a unique, decorative paper makes a wonderful gift for someone else or a special book for yourself. Learn how to prepare the book surface, use special bookbinding tools (like a bone folder) and templates, and cut up and apply pastepaper on both the outside and inside covers. You will also learn how to apply glue, avoid air bubbles, and make tidy, attractive corners for a truly professional look. Any time that remains can be devoted to making gorgeous notecards with your scraps!
You can choose to cover an 80-page, blank, wirebound fine paper sketchbook/journal, 7″ X 10″ or a 10″ X 10″ wirebound photo album with 20 blank, black pages. Both are Canson products made with high quality bookboard and archival papers. Read more >
