For me, there's no better way to spend a Saturday morning than with a bunch of crafty souls who gathered together to learn the ancient art of bookbinding together :)
I had the honour to coach a group of lovely ladies (& a guy *hugs*) on how to bind journals using the kettle-stitching technique. I also shared with them on the brief history of bookbinding, the origination of Kettle Stitching and Coptic Stitching and the differences.
It was a fun time spent with them and sharing with them my passion for bookbinding. I personally find bookbinding and crafting (be it scrapbooking, mini albums, card making, etc... ) very therapeutic. I guess there's a difference working with our hands and seeing something come to fruition after spending time on it. The feeling is indescribable.
I love how the students were very keen to ask questions and I love sharing tips with them on how to do certain steps based on my experiences on what I've gone through :)
I am very blessed to have had a mentor who has great passion in bookbinding and I aspire to be even more generous in sharing my knowledge and passion for bookbinding to my students.
I will hold your hand in this bookbinding journey and share with you things I've learned from my own journey and hope your journey will always be smoother than mine :)
