The versatile Coptic binding is essential for any binder’s repertoire. This workshop is for those who already know how to wrap covers and fold signatures. The two-needle and four-needle binding will be executed on two books with prepared covers and quires provided to allow for plenty of time to learn the stitch and its options. Instruction will cover how to space sewing stations, two-color sewing, options for the length of the link stitch, and various options for cover materials.
