Yvonne Attry reviewed: Adventures in book binding with Ali Reeve

"A really good well-paced day. Was able to make up 4 different books. Ali was informative and I felt able to check out instructions if unsure. We were a small group which I think lent itself to lots of interaction. We had a wide variety of resources to work with and I’ve come away buzzing with ideas and an entire kit!"

Stamps Away responded:

"Thank you! It was so lovely to meet you and I am so pleased that you are looking to make many more books."

"A very relaxing and enjoyable day. Clear guidance and instructions. The class is not too big so individual help is given when needed. "

"I have no hesitation in giving this course 5 stars. I first looked into book binding over three years ago but never really got further than buying a number of tools, partly because a course I'd planned on attending was discontinued. I was therefore delighted to receive Ali Reeves' course as a Christmas present from my wife. I attended the course yesterday and to say it exceeded my expectations is an understatement. Ali presented the course in an informal but instructive and informative manner and both she and her husband were very welcoming and hospitable (even providing tea and donuts). The class was not small (I am guessing there were approaching 20 of us) but Ali was easy to hear and follow, and she was able to give students the individual attention they needed when they needed it. I was one of the slow member of the group, but even I was able to produce 4 differently bound booklets in the time available - most of the class managed 5. At the end of the class there was a real sense of personal achievement. I am now training my wife - partly because I think she'll enjoy it but, equally, because it is a great way of consolidating my learning. The range of tools that Ali made available for (optional) purchase, designed & manufactured by her husband, were used throughout the course and were, for me, a must buy - especially given the very reasonable price. Be warned, I suspect this is addictive and I've already been spending on Amazon since the course."

Stamps Away responded:

"Thank you for your lovely feedback and it makes me so happy that you are sharing this craft with your wife. It was such a pleasure to teach yesterday and your sense of achievement was truly deserved, everyone did amazing. "
