CAMDEN — Carol Boyer, an artisan, quilt maker, and soft sculpture and doll designer, will offer a Fabric Arts Journal Cover workshop 9 a.m.- 3 p.m. Friday, April 8, at the Lions’ Club, Lions Lane, Camden. Participants will learn how to construct a fabric arts cover for a simple notebook. The workshop will be sponsored by the Coastal Quilters quilt group.

A “marble” composition book will be used, with the cover serving as a surface to explore different ways to use buttons, fabric, yarn and embroidery floss to shape decorative images on the removable notebook cover. The techniques can be applied to a book or notebook of any size, including loose leaf notebooks.

The workshop is open to the public, but class size is limited and preregistration is required. A materials list will be sent upon receipt of the $25 registration fee. Bring a brown bag lunch. Beverages and snacks will be provided. For registration information, call Barb Melchiskey at 236-9665 or email smelchiskey@roadrunner.com.
