      JeezLouise has it been a whole YEAR!!!??!! Well, time flies when
      you're having remodeling by idiots done. Ahhhhh, that's all over now.
      Thank you all for helping me celebrate the new studio/bindery.

      I'm planning on scheduling particular dates for some workshops - like:
      "Eccentric Contemporary Book Structures"
      "Who's Afraid of Leather?"
      "Making Multiples - Paper casting"
      "Boxes & Slipcases"
      "Japanese Rechoso Binding"
      "Papermaking 101"
      and many more...

      These will be small groups (well, you know the size of my studio) of
      probably 6 to 8 people max, but can be repeated if there's a larger
      sign-up. Here's the question: If I did these on a Saturday, would you
      come? Sunday better? Weekday? Let me know what you think. I want to
      make them accessable to the most people.
