Instructor: Sylvia Tomayko-Peters, owner of Middle Dune

Learn to make a luxurious softcover journal using the age-old bookbinding method know as Italian Long Stitch. The perfect journal for writing or sketching, a long stitch book allows for heavyweight paper and its pages will lie flat when opened. We’ll cover the techniques for preparing your paper and sizing leather or other fabric alternatives for a wrap around cover, sewing the beautiful exposed long stitch binding, and finishing your book with details such as a tie closure or embroidery.

Materials fee: $10. 

All materials and tools will be provided though you’re welcome to bring any special decorative paper, ribbon, or leather scraps you want to include in your journal.
