a Retreat to Nature for the Creative Mind

 February 2018

Gathering information, formatting and posting programs is taking up most of my time.
Getting it up on the website is taxing.
This is a work in progress.
Be sure to check back as I will continue to list more programs by months,
not just under the Workshops by Instructors.
Looking forward to Spring, hope to see you soon!

Basic Supplies

Basic 4 Hole Stab compared to Decorative Stab

The pamphlet stitch is a simple binding often used to bind chapbooks. Chapbooks are inexpensively made booklets, originally sold by “chapmen” door-to-door and village-to-village. Join Jackie Hefty from Whispering Woodlands and complete several variations using pamphlet and stab bindings. This workshop is a great foundation to your book making skills. Minimal supplies needed. Great for garden journals! Some supplies provided; a supply list will be sent to you. No experience necessary. Adults and youth (ages 15 and up w/ an adult); each attendee pays registration fee.
