Friday Night Fix – Altered Book

Join Linda for a series of 6 videos that demonstrate effective techniques to alter a food and drink related book. Originally offered every Friday night over six weeks, when viewers joined in each week to alter their own book, they are now available in a mini course that you can view at your own pace and as many times as you like.

This workshop collection contains six videos.


Add this collection of videos to your library.
