Long Stitch Bindings

with Rosae Reeder
Thursdays: October 1, 8; 6-9pm CDT

In this two-part virtual workshop, learn how to bind a softcover book with multiple sections or gatherings of pages. The long stitch binding comes from the Codex format, does not use glue, and can be made with many different options for covers. Options for cover materials and a short history of long stitch bindings will be discussed. Some binding skills helpful, but not required.
