If you believe that 1. Beautiful notebooks don’t have to be mass-produced or expensive and 2. The best gifts are those made with love, then this class is for you. This hands-on 90-minute class will walk you through the steps of crafting a unique handmade book. Once you master the art of putting together your own blank journal, your gifting possibilities are endless! Participants will leave with a finished journal, a page of journaling prompts, a pamphlet with instructions, gifting ideas, and a list of essential materials and where to source them. All supplies provided. No sewing experience required.

Families welcome. Coffee and snacks provided. Teens are welcome to attend with an older relative. We will provide simple activities to keep young children occupied.
