Fabric Book Workshop

I'm teaching a Fabric Book Workshop next Saturday, and there's still openings. Here's the scoop. [Email me if you want to attend.]

Saturday, October 20 downtown San Diego
10am - 4pm (bring a sack lunch)
Sponsored by San Diego Book Arts
$65 SDBA & SDWI members/$85 nonmembers, plus $10 materials fee
Create a small fabric book containing your story or poem. As you create your book from your fabric, you’ll learn transfer techniques to get your words on to fabric, basic sewing and embroidery techniques, and hopefully the joy of creating with cloth. Jane will supply the stiff interfacing for the book pages, a few book designs to choose from, fabric scraps, threads, and buttons. You bring an assortment of small pieces of fabric (4 or 5 ‘fat quarters’ (a fat quarter is a piece of fabric18x22”) sold at craft or fabric stores would be enough) sewing needles, scissors, and most importantly, your short story or poem. (Optional: sewing and embroidery thread, ribbons, buttons, charms or anything that fits the theme of your text.)
