We set the ground rules and expectations, we dished a bit on some basic terminology as well as some dos and don’ts, and we made some fun four-page 18th centuryesque pamphlets with humorous musings by some crazy Honey Badger Binder guy! Lesson was paper folding, grain direction, and the pamphlet stitch.
