Need that finishing touch for your journal? I’ve got you covered – welcome to the next installment of Find Closure!

Consider this workshop the equivalent of a Closure Dressy Bessy. First you’ll complete a soft cover, leather book using a variation of the long stitch binding. Then comes the fun part – you’ll experiment with a variety of ways to secure those books. You’ll explore ways to use buttons, leather straps, and metal hardware to create up to 5 closures per book (as time allows).

Bring your own embellishments (buttons, ribbons, etc.) that you’d like to use for closures – there will be time for discussion and problem-solving as a group.

You’ll leave this workshop with one book measuring 9.5″ x 6.5″, along with a detailed handout and resource list for all materials used.

Materials/Equipment: Bone folder, scissors, X-Acto knife and extra blades, 24″ metal ruler, awl, cutting mat, pencil, a minimum of two sewing needles, Japanese screw punch (or equivalent) with assorted bits (1.0 – 5.0), small glue brush (0.5″ – 1″),  small metal triangle

Note: Bring the supplies if you have them – don’t feel obligated to buy anything. I’ll have extras available.

Cost: $50.00 SPA members/$60.00 non-members

Materials fee: $30.00
