#5102 Long/Link with Circle Stitch Binding, January 31 with Anne Covell

$ 120.00


This is an Online Class. This traditionally non-adhesive structure combines elements of both long and link stitch bindings to create an amazing variety of stitching patterns. Found predominantly throughout Europe beginning in the 16th century, this historical structure was often bound blank and used for account books and ledgers. In this workshop, we will use these historical methods as a framework for learning to sew a long stitch binding with a decorative link stitched circle at its center. Emphasis will be placed on constructing stiff handmade paper wrappers, developing templates, punching, and sewing. Finishing details including button closures and ties will also be covered.

Students in this class will be provided with a descriptive handout and materials list in advance of the class to allow students to bind along with the instructor during the demonstration.

This is an online class. Information about participating by zoom will be sent to all participants in advance. We encourage you to enroll early so you can gather the materials and supplies and work along during the class.

We want you to join the class by video, if possible, and participate. If you have a noisy household (dogs, partners, music lessons) we encourage you to mute your speaker so the instructor can be heard easily by everyone.

Try to prepare a workspace so you have some room to work, and a space to connect to the class.

Only include who needs to be there. We hope you catch the spirit and want to teach everyone you know how to make books. Plan to do that after the class, please don't include family members, neighbors, pets in this call.
