I would love to take part in all your workshops, unfortunately its rather a long way to travel. I am very interested in learning more about making reasonably simple books. These classes sound so good.

Velma Bolyard said...

Velma: Well we will both be teaching, sadly not together. But wouldn't that be fun!!!!

Debbie: I hope one of these days to be able to teach in Europe so who knows it might happen that I can come to you. Alternatively I am planning a series of PDF's on my techniques.
