About MoonlightBindery

Sales 1,405
On Etsy since 2007

I am a book conservator, bookbinder and a librarian - all things book!

I started my shop in 2007 on a whim. I posted a few poorly photographed (in hindsight) journals and notebooks and was thrilled when I quickly had a sale. When I started doing craft fairs - Crafty Bastards was my first show ever in 2008 - business really started to boom.

The connections I make to my customers are what keep me motivated. I have regular customers who have become friends. Many people keep in touch and even send me stories of how they use my journals. One was even used for a wedding proposal!

    Dragging bookbinding into modern times by combining ancient techniques with found and re-purposed materials I infuse my books with history and fun. When not creating in my home-based studio I work as a rare book conservator and teach bookbinding.
