Saturday morning surf report…

Filed under: Surfs Up — jackie @ 8:51 am

Good morning surfers. I hope everyone had an excellent week.

I’ve got some great information and sites for you to check out this morning so grab some coffee and let’s get surfin!

First up is J Hewitt & Sons Ltd. These folks sell some of the best leathers in the business for bookbinding. Their site offers tools and supplies as well as lots of links and information. Stay tuned for our anniversary week three interview with these folks.

Some of my readers have asked about the templates and paints that I got at the quilt show that are used for making the fabric rubbings. Here is a link to basic instructions on how to create the rubbings. You can get the leaf rubbing plates here and the Shiva Art Sticks here . For the paints you can try your local art supply store. Our Jerry’s Artarama store has all the colors at a great price and for the next week you can download a coupon from their site and get a discount on your purchase. For the rubbing plates check your local Parent Teacher or educational stores. They might have them there. I will check ours this week and report back. I will be doing an article on my experiments with these so stay tuned.

If you haven’t already been there you def. need to check out the Book Arts Web. Maintained by Peter D. Verheyen “the Book Arts Web which features links to a large selection of book arts related sites on the web, including educational opportunities, professional organizations, tutorials, reference materials, and galleries with images.” This is a site you could get lost in for hours.

That’s it for today. If anyone has any suggestions for sites that you think should be included in our weekly surf reports please send me an email and let me know.

I hope everyone has a great day.

Surf’s up!
