Some Sewing Machine Experience Required. We will have some beginning sessions on learning how to use the machines throughout the retreat.

I adore fabric journals. They are so nice to hold in your hands and so beautifully unique.  I have made fabric covers for most of my purchased journals and sketchbooks but in the last couple years I have delved deeper into the art of creating my own hand bound journals so I could get the paper I wanted in the size I wanted. In this book I solved the annoying problem of having to drag a pencil/pen case along with your journal.

We will create this enticing journal from start to finish in this class. Don't fret about not being an expert stitcher! This textile journal or sketch book is stitch and book beginner friendly. If you have any questions e-mail me at lizkettle@textileevolution.com

$15 kit fee payable to instructor at beginning of class:
for Multi-Purpose Cloth, zippers, hand dyed twill tape and Fusible web.

Supplies to bring:

Assorted fabrics for your cover and zip bag

Sewing machine in good working order. Don't forget all the attachments and power cords. Free motion capability preferred but not mandatory. Sewing machine: in good working condition and the ability to drop or cover the feed dogs.

We will have machines available if you are traveling. Please contact Glenny or Liz (lizkettle@textileevolution.com) to reserve a machine.
