No-Sew Books!



Deale Elks Lodge - 6022 Drum Point Rd, Deale, MD 20751

The next Muddy Creek Artists Guild DoART event will feature how to make two no-sew books with bookbinder/artist Chrissie Hines.

No experience necessary-whether you are a beginner or an advanced maker, you’re sure to discover a favorite project in the two activities Chrissie has lined up. All supplies provided with your registration.


Join us for this artful and fun evening!

Upcoming Events:


Registration includes your materials as well as complimentary snacks and beverages. Each participant will produce two books: The first project features an envelope book that uses an origami technique. Its cover will use only one of those gorgeous paper napkins (the kind you like to save, so feel free to bring your stash to share!). The second project is based on the popular Midori style journals which are versatile. The page technique uses 18 x 24” paper, is open to many creative opportunities and is infinitely renewable. If weather and time allow, we will decorate the covers.

Space is limited to 30 seats!

Chrissie Hines' mother and grandmother taught her to sew by the time she was 8; she says that her mother always said “make time to play” and eventually Chrissie started playing around sewing books. She recently returned to apparel sewing with her CupcakeClothing for women and returned to teaching book and bookbinding at Queens Ink in Savage, MD.
