Weekend at Rosaryville October 10, 11 & 12

We are anticipating a wonderful weekend at Rosaryville.

Among many other projects, Eugenia Uhl will present a demonstration on Coptic Bookmaking.

For those attending here is a short materials list provided by Eugenia.

small curved bookbinding needle

1-piece davey or mat board, 5.75 x9

20-8.5×11 pieces of paper, for inside book

30” book binding thread (we have lots that belongs to the Guild)

10 paper clips

2 medium binder clips

sumi ink and large brush OR decorative papers: 1-7.75×13 (for outside cover) and
1-5.5×8.5 (for inside cover), pvc glue, glue brush (I have a simple way of “decorating” a davey or mat board that makes a good cover.)

book cradle OR telephone book, for punching holes ( I have 2 cradles and can share)

paper cutter OR ruler, knife and cutting board, for cutting boards and papers (I’ll bring my paper cutter)

This only one of many exciting demonstrations.  So bring your favorite supplies including some good quality paper for an illuminated letter project.
