Geetha, Inara, Patty, Nor, Ruzana, Kaylee, Rebekah, Adlin, Suraiya, Nik, Azzah, Shade & Dye eagerly came all the way to learn the new skill creating a hand bound book. Kaylee was the youngest student and at age 13, she was definitely really really good & focus:) The rest are doing pretty well even though there are some panicking happened here and there. Once everyone get the momentum, they are kind of quite and focus to finish up their own book:) I found that fascinating... quite mean they understand and really into it..
