Treasures of the Week: September 20

This week we have two huge boxes of leather from Coach

MFTA takes in items from individuals and businesses that don't need them and distributes them to schools and arts non-profits that turn 'trash into treasure'

These leather scraps can be used in all sorts of ways.  Teachers, can you imagine your students writing in handmade Coach leather notebooks?  The MFTA team created a sample notebook in 15 minutes!

This notebook was easy to make with materials from MFTA's warehouse

Want to learn how to do this yourself or how to teach your students?  Anyone can sign up here for MFTA’s Bookmaking workshop Tuesday, November 16, 2010, 9:00-11:00am.
