Asheville BookWorks

Soft Covers, Strong Structures

It’s pretty awesome to be back in Asheville. The reasons abound, but way up in my top 3 is Asheville BookWorks. Since I first walked though the doors of this amazing space, way back in 2005, it’s been my favorite place to print, bind and teach. Heck! It’s one of my favorite placed to be. So I’m super excited that I was able to participate, full-fledged, at this year’s BookOpolis. I’m also thrilled to be joining the crew of Instructors at BookWorks again. Beginning in January, I’ll be teaching a variety of classes in my favorite space.

My first class is Soft Covers, Strong Structures, which will cover the long stitch, link stitch and tacket binding. Asheville is a pretty amazing place to visit, and BookWorks is a must-see. So come on down!
