Join The Handmade Book Club

We simplify traditional bookbinding techniques for the modern maker. 

Inside the Handmade Book Club you'll enjoy the support and friendship of other paper-addicted makers.

We are painters, printmakers, quilters, art journalers and mixed media artists who love to create their own unique handmade books.

In addition pre-recorded video lessons, there are several virtual meetings each month, day-long retreats, swaps and a thriving Facebook community.

We share resources, inspiration, our struggles and victories.

Monthly Project

On the first of the month you receive access to a new bookbinding project. All videos are pre-recorded. The level of difficulty varies each month. Enjoy an inspiration gallery by your fellow bookmakers.

Guest Artists

Included in your membership is a monthly hour-long mixed media classes which teaches a technique to go inside your journal. We also host a quarterly online retreat with a guest artist.


There is a monthly community meeting that includes small group show & tell, club guests and galleries of ideas. We also hold new member mixers and local gatherings. There is also a thriving Facebook group and non-Facebook community forum. 

Resource Library

You'll have access to a large resource library of basic bookbinding techniques. Additionally, we hold live sessions where we cover basic concepts, such as thread, book board and paper choices.

Not only has your book club inspired me, taught me and been my lifeline through Covid, I realize that I have found a group of people just like me!

A newbie like me feels so welcomed, and I feel no pressure to do anything perfectly, or rigidly adhere to any standards.

I have been frustrated with trying to learn the process through YouTube videos and Pinterest step by steps.  Yours is by far the best program I have found.  THANK YOU!!!!
