We all have saved special bits and little treasures that are mementos of a person, time or simply appeal to our senses. Most likely they are in a drawer somewhere, seldom seen or held. With this Treasured Memento Pocket Journal you can create a special place for all those wonderful bits of memory and time.
Whether your style is romantic, tailored or lighthearted and fun this fabric book is flexible enough to adapt to it. Imagine memories of a wedding, a mischievous child or a vintage romance housed in the sweet pockets of this book.

This beguiling book will beckon your muse, not with a bashful whisper but with a bold demand…it begs to be touched, fondled, written in and upon.
We will begin with painting our pages to banish the barren desert of the white page. These easy paint techniques will provide inspiration and a beautiful beginning to embellish with your images, your story, your dreams.
This binding is a great place for beginners to start and offers variations for more advanced binders. Best of all, this buxom binding is sturdy and allows the book to lie flat when open. Using up-cycled belts for our binding makes it easy on the budget.
Class kit fee is $10: includes book board for covers, waxed linen thread in an assortment of basic colors, needles and belts for you to choose from. I will also provide stencils, stamps, and paper towels for classroom use. If you would like to personalize your book with a special belt or specialty color of waxed linen thread (about 20 yards) you are welcome to bring your own.
