Published DateMEREDITH — The ﬁrst Leaf & Fabric Collage Quick Books workshop at the lakes gallery at chi-lin was so quickly sold out, and such a success that the gallery is adding a second.
A special "Teen" version has also been added for vacation week.
These little books make beautiful diaries, summer house recipe books or travel journals, and are unique gifts for Mother's Day, graduation, or baby and wedding showers.
