Sign up now for a two- part Hard Cover Book Making Class!!! with Kleiner Eisbar! I took a Slab Book Making Class with them a few months ago and I absolutely LOVED it. I have made a bunch of note books and sketch pads since that class. I think this is going to be an excellent learning experience. These books are just gorgeous and there are two million uses for them. We will be meeting on October 11th and October 18th for this class. I hope you will join me and Dennis and Krissy and learn how to make these beautiful books! They will make wonderful Holiday gifts!
