THIS MONTH:

Learn how to create a custom, reusable dayplanner (or journal) from an old hardcover book.

Instead of buying a new dayplanner each year, Anne will show you how to make a reusable handmade cover from an old hardcover book, and how to attach the new pages each year!

If you have an old hardcover 5.5”x9” (min) book or two, please bring them along!

If you want to pre-print the inside pages, you can down a file from here: PassionPlanner: www.passionplanner.com/

Print your dayplanner on 8.5" x 11" paper (to be folded in half) in 4 signatures (or you can come and see Anne's sample and print it later!).

Saturday Dec 16
2 - 4 pm
118 Woodman Rd, Wolfville

~Free event~
($5 suggested donation to cover material costs)

Learn how to create notebooks using Japanese Bookbinding techniques.

These make lovely notebooks, sketch books and gifts.
You'll leave with your own booklet in hand!

We'll also give you a sneak peak at more elaborate bookbinding styles and at how to make your own day-planner.

Free event ($5 donation suggested to cover material costs)
Family friendly!

Things you can bring if you happen to have them:

- thick, sturdy paper for book cover (thickness 90 - 100lb weight max!)
- thin linen thread or bookbinding thread (not sewing thread, it will cut the paper)
- very strong thin needles (e.g. darning needles)
- pliers
- leather scraps
