In Your Words
I love your web site! I think I found it a couple of weeks ago by doing
a search on the web. (I was inspired to learn how to make a Coptic bound
journal after seeing them at a local street fair, so I searched the internet
for directions and help since I had nobody to ask. My first one took about 8
hours, and I'm hooked.) Your site has lots of great pictures and a very
helpful punching cradle I'm looking forward to using. You also offer lots of
pictures, ideas, and variety - 3 sizes of
2 burnishers -which I
really appreciate. Thank you! I don't buy much over the internet, but I knew
right away that I'd purchase from you. Somebody did a very good job of
designing your site. I may join one of your
swaps some day. :-D -- Anne F.
