Journal Making Class—Long Stitch with Chain


Nikki Thompson


Book making/Journal





Want to impress everyone at the café with a hand-sewn journal? Want to document your travels with a super deluxe stitched spine? We’ll make a multi-signature journal, using a long stitch with chain sewing pattern. You’ll learn how to make signatures, pierce a cover and signatures, and sew both a long stitch and a chain stitch. The long stitch has been around since the Middle Ages; and the chain stitch, or Coptic style, was invented in the second century by Egyptian Christians. Historical and fancy looking!
