The Japanese sidestitch, or stab binding, became popular in the 14th century. We will bind three Japanese-style books in a basic stab binding pattern, a tortoise shell binding pattern, and a hemp pattern. We will learn to pierce sewing stations and bind or sew the book. The final products make beautiful gifts or journals.
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)
