What you need is a guide to help you avoid making costly mistakes, and that's where I come in:

This is a truly special opportunity for you to sign up for one-on-one Skype or Facetime lessons! There are not many opportunities to learn book repair at this level. Usually you have to travel and pay a fortune for a one week class that may or may not cover what you need to learn at the moment. Here is what one student had to say about her experience:


Taking Sophia's courses definitely brought my book binding and repair skills to an entirely new level. Sophia makes even the toughest projects fun and really wants to see people succeed. She's a true expert in her field and I cannot recommend her enough. She's THE BEST!!!                               Camille P.     Northern Virginia
