All familiar with www. but for binders this Saturday it is sss. Section Sewing Saturday 14 September, 9.30am to 12.30pm, Rm 3, Hughes Community Centre.
The morning will start at 9.30. Many binding styles involve stitching, so your committee has designed a morning of hands-on activities around the topic of ‘Section Sewing’. Many questions arise when sewing sections and let’s see if they can all be answered. Experienced CCBG members have volunteered to share their knowledge by teaching this Saturday.
If you want to practice section sewing please bring along a text block. Suggest a text block of 7 sections. Alternative to a text block is to bring along paper and your bone folder to put together a text block to stitch. Come along only $5 which goes to cost of hiring room.
Boxes useful and beautiful. There is an element of surprise when
you open a box. Hear many ah’s uttered on the discovery of what’s inside.
Please bring along your boxes for the display and we will share
our stories on constructing our boxes. I am looking for everyone to bring along
a box. If you haven’t made a box then come along with a picture of what you
would like to make.
Lets make it a mega display.
Need assistance with your bookbinding project, stitching, there
will be help on hand.
Come along, be with other binders and share and learn together.
