Long Stitch Book with Hardwood Spine
with Sue Bjerke
Saturday, November 4; 9am-5pm
All skill levels welcome
Add something new to your long stitch repertoire: a drilled wooden spine. Use hardwoods from Africa and South America in a rainbow of colors: canarywood, rosewood, bloodwood, and purpleheart are among the possibilities. Cover weight papers will be selected to complement your wood spine, which will be drilled in class from a template. Long stitch sewing through the wood spine will result in stunning contrasts. Optional embellishment of top-stitching on the book covers will be discussed and demonstrated. The final book will be a chunky 7 x 6 inches (approximately), great for sketching or journals.
