Ali has been blogging about paper crafts and book arts since the internet dark ages of 2007. Teaching others to express their creativity through handmade books is her greatest joy. She believes that anyone can create a handmade book and it shouldn’t require expensive tools or equipment.
Her students appreciate the way she breaks down the most complicated bookbinding projects into manageable and easy steps.
Working from her studio in an old school house in Groton, Massachusetts, she has taught thousands of students via her blog, Vintage Page Designs, in person and with her latest online adventure, The Handmade Book Club.
Her work has been featured in Somerset Studio, Take Ten, Paper Crafts Magazine and Cloth, Paper, Scissors.
