Does anyone know of hand bookbinding classes in Northern Virginia? We live in Fairfax, but anywhere in the DC area would be fine.

One of the best binderies in the area gives courses out in Winchester. VA.
They are one of only a handful of binders in the country that is contracted by the National Parks Service and it's the NPS that holds a lot of this country's book treasures. While I was taking courses there, they were working on Robert E. Lees family and battle bibles, John Wilkes Booth's diaries, and George C. Marshall's entire library.
Check out their Workshops and Study like on thier web site

Nancy (at Delaney Restoration) studied and worked at in Winchester, VA. There, Jill, teaches about 10 classes a year and also has guest masters come in to teach marbling, mini books. etc. As a matter of fact, the bible Nancy shows on front page of her web site I saw at Cat Tail Run when Nancy was still working there and I was taking classes.
