LIBROS is pleased to announce a new program called "Trying It Out" which will be especially helpful for beginners. We will work through Alisa Golden's book Creating Handmade Books, one chapter at a time. At each monthly meeting, you can bring the book you made during the previous month and get help with any of the steps. You can buy this book online at Amazon or borrow it from the LIBROS library (for one month only!). For more info, email Mita.
