We had a great time as your committee representing Bookbinders at the Clunes Booktown May5 2019. Official statistics were 15000 attended in the 2 days. We spent our time doing various book making tasks, case binding boxes, book stitching, and gold blocking. We gave away over 100 bookmarks with personal gold blocked names to the people who stopped by for a discussion. See more about Gold Blocking hands on in the March 2019 meeting at West Hawthorn Uniting Church.
