Old School

We live in a digital world, but there's still satisfaction to be found in holding a book. Less glare, for one thing. Even better--bookmaking captures and displays personal stories, art and history. Paper Nerds teaches what may become a lost art. At its next workshop, learn to sew a binding with a soft cover and exposed stitching on the spine, as well as how to sew a chain stitch for spine and cover decoration for journals, address books or artist's books. The workshop is from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday at Paper Works, 4101 Commerce St., Suite No. 6. The class is $75 and limited to seven participants. Call 214-827-0200 or visit papernerds.blogspot.com.

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
