Our meeting will start with our book clinic, so bring along your projects, and favourite items to share and inspire us. Elke is not well, so a change of program, we hope to have the end band demonstration later on. We will watch a video from the National Bookbinders Conference in Canberra. The presentation is of french leather binding, showing some of the unique characteristics of the style, and the skill of the binder.

Suzanne has prepared a book ready for binding and shows us the process of covering in leather.
