The consultation that I received was great. They were able to help I would like to see them come to diffrent libraries around the city. When I told people about the one on one talk with the lawyer they where interested. More circulation to diffrent libraries would be great.

Another great group of creative women, all novice at bookmaking with wonderful results. They made books with secret compartments to hold jewelry, money, person messages, and more. Thank you for your participation and thanks to Pratt for making this class possible.
