Journal Making: Long Stitch with Chain

  • Sacramento Book Collectors Club 1721 25th Street Sacramento, CA, 95816 United States (map)

The long stitch has been around since the Middle Ages; and the chain stitch was invented in the second century by Egyptian Christians. We will make a multi-signature journal, using a long stitch with chain sewing pattern. You will learn how to make signatures, pierce a cover and signatures, and sew both a long stitch and a chain stitch.

You will need a bone folder, awl, and needle, X-acto knife, ruler, cutting matte, scissors, and pencil (if you do not already have these the instructor will have them available for you to borrow).

Price: $60 (SBCC Member Price: $50)
