Presented by Kalamazoo Book Arts Center at Online/Virtual Space

Apr 14 2021
Long Stitch Journal Workshop

Wednesday April 14,
Virtual Class via Zoom
6:30 to 8:30 p.m., Eastern time

Instructor: Katie Platte

Learn how to bind a book using the long and chain-stitch technique, a binding that dates all the way back to medieval Germany. Who would’ve thought this style would still look as hip today? With this method, the paper sections of your book will be sewn directly through the spine, allowing your stitch-work to be visible and incorporated into the overall design. Beginners welcome.
