Demos & Desserts at Miller’s Thumb
This past Saturday, I had the pleasure of doing a bookbinding demonstration at the Miller’s Thumb Gallery in Greensboro, Vermont. The gallery is really lovely and is well worth a visit if you’re ever in the area.
I arrived at the gallery about an hour ahead of time because I left extra-early – I have a habit of getting lost whenever I drive to Greensboro. I had some time to poke around in Willey’s, the general store next door. The place was hopping and I had to wiggle around to get through the aisles. The store is a local treasure – it has a wonderful feel to it.
The gallery folks brought some of my work closer to the demo area so people could see what I had available for purchase.
I demonstrated the binding of my new leather coptic journals. The covers and signatures were prepared in advance so I could focus on the sewing. I managed to finish 2 1/2 journals while I was there.
The gallery hosts demonstrations throughout the summer and the series is officially called Demos and Desserts. I’ve talked about the demo, now here are the desserts – cookies!
Woohoo – Milanos! And handmade chocolate coconut yummies made by gallery staff (and fellow book artist) Anna.
I had a great time during my demonstration – many thanks to the gallery for inviting me!
