June WAV Meeting - More from the Book Challenge

Joe Madl gave a talk on book binding. He brought his press, handouts, and some incredible examples to the meeting. Check out Joe's blog.

Brooke Atherton's challenge piece. She used a pieced project she found at the Rescue Mission as the foundation for this piece. It turned out to be something Cheryl (seated next to Brooke) had made years before.

Cheryl Wittmayer's book was a gardening book.
