I had an awful cold before the course and during the Saturday. Sunday at 6:30 am I was busy throwing up and came to the horrible realization that I wasn't going to make it through the Sunday. So I missed my second day. Somehow I managed to make it back to Vancouver through sheer willpower.
Joan was very good about it. She made some models (samples) of notebooks for me. Since the course ended I've replicated most of them. I had no idea there were so many different styles of notebooks.
There were also notebooks with flat spines and a link stitch on the front.
