It's that time of year again! Join me in historic Franklin, Tennessee on December 10-11 for the 32nd annual Dickens of a Christmas Holiday Festival and celebrate the season in Dickensian style. Last year was a blast and I can't wait to do it again!
This year will feature more than 60 vendors and demonstrating artisans, tasty treats, music, and dozens of costumed actors in historic Victorian attire, all to highlight the stunning Victorian Architecture of historic downtown Franklin, TN which will be festooned in holiday decorations galore!
Join me again in the Artisan Village as I bind books the good old fashioned way, by hand on a sewing frame (and in costume!) If you visited me last year, I spent the whole weekend binding books the good old fashioned way. Those books I sewed last year will be finished and offered this year for purchase in limited quantities, finished in a Victorian style. The next year i'll do the same! How often can you get your hands on an authentic, handmade victorian-style journal? Nowhere else gov'na! And these will be the first annual edition of Dickens of a Christmas Victorian journals to boot!
I'll have all the holiday goodies your festive hearts desire, from deluxe handmade journals and notebooks, to book pendants, ornaments & jewelry, letterpress stationery for stocking stuffers and hand-painted limited edition art prints. Be sure to follow me on Instagram (@crowinghensbindery) and Twitter (@crowinghensbind) for updates on how these Victorian style journals are coming along!
