For this first binding I will be happy to provide some of the basic materials to everyone and enough of other materials to some. Eventually, you will want to be self-sufficient.
Here is what you will NEED:
I Will provide:
Plain white and black thread
12X18 drawing paper
You may particularly want to bring your own paper and thread.
If you choose to bring your own cord, I strongly recommend a material that can be frayed.
