Silver and Suede Journal
Friday, August 7 4:15-6:15 PM

Students will choose a piece of colored suede for their
cover. This five section journal is sewn with a fine linen
which causes the beads to appear to be “floating” along the
spine. A large center bead is bracketed by two Czech glass
beads. A heavy paper for the sections adds to the heft of
this journal, which opens perfectly flat. Class fee includes
written instructions & all materials needed to complete one
journal. Jan is a bookbinding master and a graduate of

“Couture” — A French Door Book — Stampaway 2014

WED AUG 6 5:30-8:30 PM Couture

Ooh-la-la! This is one gorgeous book! You’ll use paper from the Graphic 45 “Couture” collection to create a stunning French door book. Untie the black satin ribbon to find a little 16 page text section under each door. Look further and you’ll find vintage hats and journaling cards. Adorning this book is Irish linen book-cloth. You’ll learn the “laced dash” stitch trimmed with glass beads to sew your book with Irish waxed linen. Your class fee includes all materials. The written instructions will allow you to create as many more journals as you would like. Jan Lill Worms is a graduate of Hollanders School of Book and Paper Arts in Ann Arbor, MI. Attendees of past Stampaway classes may remember her as Jan Beineke. Bring: pencil, ruler, bone folder, awl, scissors, 1” foam or flat brush for gluing, an old wash rag to use for gluing and a transparent 12 “ ruler. Helpful if you have: paperback book at least 1” thick to use as a punching cradle (using it for this purpose will break the spine, so bring a book that can be “abused”).
