DIY Bookbinding- what we’re up to!

Last week we explored several stab binding variations, starting with the simplest of Japanese bindings and a more intricate tortoiseshell pattern. There are some good online tutorials for these structures, so Google them if you’re curious!

We also made this creative variation on the traditional stab binding. You can find instructions in Keith Smith’s Non-Adhesive Binding, a great resource for making books at home.

This week we’ll practice longstitch sewings with multiple signatures. More photos to come. Hope everyone has an inspiring and productive week!
