Bethel Township Founder's Day
"I just wanted to send you a note high on praise for your referral of Ramon Townsend. I contacted him with regards to two family heirlooms, books that were my great grandfather's. The covers were completely off and the pages were no longer turnable. Ramon within a month had each book returned to me in working condition and fully restored. He is a highly trained craftsman who loves his work. Please make sure you refer him all the time."
"Thank you! The book is sturdy again, and so handsome. I plan on being in touch with you soon about some of my other books."
"I'm supposed to extend a huge thank you from my dad. He's amazed with the job and is very, very happy. "
EXAMPLES OF COMPLETED WORKSHOP BOOKS
"Ramon you and Danielle helped to make our event a success!! Your display was awesome and our visitors loved you guys!! Looking forward to working with you again."
"Ramon: Thanks for the bible repair job. The recipients will soon enjoy a family heirloom that they didn't even know existed.It'll be neat to get it back to where it belongs."
"Thanks Ramon. My mother hasn't put her diary down since you left. You made her very happy!"
"I really enjoyed the class. I feel like I can make books on my own now. I would love to do a marbling workshop with you. Thanks for the great day!"
"Love my rebound books! Now looking for more that need some love."
"I had a really enjoyable time yesterday – the site, the class, the people, having the experience of “piecework”, seeing the basics of bookbinding, and the enjoyable conversation afterwards."
"I thoroughly enjoyed the bookbinding class last Saturday. Ramon is a great teacher and most knowledgable about his craft. His personality and patience shows and his love for his work is apparent. I hope to learn more from him. I would like to know more about your upcoming programs and hope Ramon will be giving more seminars also. Keep up the good work."
We both thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and will keep an eye out for the paper marbling workshop. You are a very knowledgable teacher."

" The class was a wonderful experience that far surpassed my expectations. I didn't think we would come out of the class with this much knowledge. My book turned out great and I'm already coming up with ideas for the family history book I'm putting together."
"My book turned out great, I love it and I loved the class. Might try to visit Sugartown soon. Hope to take the marbling class."
