The Longstitch BA01SU13
In this short course, students will create several blank books bound in the longstitch style, an exposed sewing in which decorative stitches show on the finished book’s spine. This sturdy structure travels well and makes an excellent sketchbook or journal as it opens flat. This book structure can be made without special equipment. Instruction is adjusted to the binding skill of the individual. No experience necessary. Intermediate students may continue on individual projects. Enrollment in this class includes one 3-hour monitored open bench session a week.
