Design Your Own Stab Binding

with Yuka Petz
Thursday, July 29; 6–9pm CT

Personalize and design your own stab bindings! After looking at examples to gain a deeper understanding of what makes a successful stab binding design, we will sketch ideas, develop unique templates, and dive into our personalized sewn structures.

At the end of the workshop, we will have a brief show-and-share to marvel at the variety of designs made in class. This virtual workshop is appropriate for high-level beginner and intermediate binders. Participants must be comfortable sewing a basic four-hole stab binding.
