After 36 years in the field, and about 15 years running Panther Peak Bindery, I am no longer repairing books for individuals.

I am, however, continuing to teach and will offer more classes than I have in the past.  I expect to offer two one day classes per month to start and will alter that according to demand and interest.

If you have a book you’d like repaired I would recommend Tammy at 520.261.3356. Her web site is:
