The final stage (Class #5) of my Hand Stitching class was to put the samples (samplers and challenges) together into a book. Since we didn't have enough time to complete the entire book during class, I wanted to make sure that students had a good start. We focused on the cover, possibilities for borders and backings, and page connections.

I'm interested in teaching a variation of this class as a week long or even a weekend workshop. If you have a fiber/quilt/stitching group that might be interested...feel free to contact me...(leave a comment).
