Re: starting off



In a message dated 97-05-27 10:39:00 EDT, you write:

<< Like playing the violin, you need to start out early in life to do it.
  Most anyone can learn to do ordinary library bindings, but so what?. Also,
 earning a decent living at it is an unlikely scenario.   >>

The first sentence is nonsense, the second pretentious, the third
presumptuous. Mari didn't specify the kind of bookbinding in which she is
interested. Her address suggests she may be a college student--how much younge
r need she be? And perhaps she is fortysomething, an accomplished pianist
with terrific finger dexterity.

She could prepare by self-study; her own idea of serving an apprenticeship is
an intelligent way to master her skills.
