A big thank you to everyone who came out and supported all us makers at this year’s One of a Kind Show! Your appreciation for handmade is amazing!!
It’s been a few days since the show ended, and I’ve been busy as ever catching up on orders and getting the winter 2017 workshop schedule in order.
I’m happy to announce that REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!!!
All you bookbinding enthusiasts, now’s your chance to make a wish list, or make someone else’s paper-loving, book-maker dreams come true! Head over to the Workshops section of my site to see what’s available!
It’s that time of year, when I spend 11 days as a vendor at the One of a Kind Show here in Toronto.
I’ve got several new designs, old favourites and some brand new things this year!! (Like the Bookbinder’s Toolkits!). Find me at booth E34 this year. Stop by and say Hello, I always like chatting with fellow bibliophiles!
Things around the studio have been quite hectic lately, lots of freshly handbound journals off to new homes, workshops being taught and holiday show prep. While I won’t go into details here, instead I’ll redirect you to my eNewsletter sign up for a more in-depth look at what’s next for Sprouts Press holiday shows and such.

I’m having a little Boxing Week Sale over on Etsy! I’ve created a whole section dedicated just to sale items, have a look here. Otherwise, I’m trying my best to add new items on a fairly regular basis, keep your eyes peeled!
Thank you to everyone who has supported me and my little bookbinding company this year. Your love of books, support for handmade and kind words have made it a great journey. While I always appreciate these things, they were especially soothing on the tough days. Thank you.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, whatever you celebrate, may it bring you joy and happiness!

No previous art experience is required.
