    Book Arts: The Buttonhole Stitch Book With Michele Olsen

    Embroiderers use the buttonhole stitch to decorate fabric; book artists use it to attach pages to the book spine. The technique results in a open spine structure that reveals individual sections and provides many creative possibilities for the paper artist and book designer. We will explore variations of the structure — beginning to more advanced. All levels welcome.
