Join popular Bay Area artist C.K. Itamura, Co-founder of Book Arts Roadshow, for this fun-filled workshop to create an exquisite Asian Sewing Notions Book that holds thread, pins, sewing needles, extra buttons — everything you need for making quick little repairs to clothes and sewn crafts. To make this special book, you will use beautiful Japanese papers and learn a little origami, too.

This is a wonderful project to make by yourself or with friends and family (hint: holiday gift!; Girlfriends day out!; Mother’s Day present!).
