Want to impress everyone at the café with a hand-sewn journal? Want to document your travels with a super deluxe stitched spine? We’ll make a multi-signature journal, using a long stitch with chain sewing pattern. You’ll learn how to make signatures, pierce a cover and signatures, and sew both a long stitch and a chain stitch. The long stitch has been around since the Middle Ages; and the chain stitch, or Coptic style, was invented in the second century by Egyptian Christians. Historical and fancy looking!
You may choose to purchase the bone folder, awl,and needle provided to you during class for an additional $10 on the day of the class.
We will provide an xacto knife, ruler, and scissors, but feel free to bring your own!
