A Flock of Books Lands in Jarrow

Our last meeting in September was very busy. Not only did we make books but we broke records - or so we think. A hardback multi-section book was made during a single workshop, created from scratch, glued, sewn and completed. And we made another book too: a concertina book was made by the nimble-fingered. Others were too exhausted to even contemplate the idea but watched the others work.
Shown below are two photographs of the sewing process after we had glued the board covers.
David Karle took sewing lessons to complete his book. The finished flock of books is shown in the last two pictures. The range of colours was amazing and should be a good addition to our Christmas exhibition - look out for them there.
