• Japanese Stab Binding

    Posted on May 5, 2014 by in Current Workshops, Sewn Spine, Workshop Followup

    Twelve students learned the “ins and outs” of a side bound book. Book board was covered to create two hinged covers. Students could choose to make a photo album (with a fold on each page to accommodate the extra dimensions of added photos) or a journal. Everyone used either a Dremel drill or power drill to create the holes for the sewing. There were as many types of sewing thread as people; some chose the basic side stitch and others sewed the hemp stitch. One student used beads on the front. Great results after an afternoon of class!

    Tip for students: Because the back and front look the same, put some type of embellishment on the front. I just finished my book and use this as an example. Happy Booking!
