I would be happy to have the discussion! Please just convo me and we'll get to work making that perfect book with just the right cover, inside paper, size and extra embellishments.

If you want to get your hands into making your own, BeetleBarrow Books is a collaborative between Chandra Rice and myself. We have workshops in the Hamilton and Niagara Regions of Ontario, and we have gorgeous kits full of great materials.

Bookbinding is an amazing process of composing, cutting, measuring, gluing, fretting, and happiness and we want anyone to see and enjoy the gorgous things they can make themselves.

Find out more about me and my work by visiting www.beetlebarrow.ca.
Beetlebarrrow is a collaborative of two women who love making.
