Paired Needle Bindings

Paired Needle Binding



Paired Needle Binding Jackie Hefty

It just sounds difficult, not really so hard, but it gives you bragging rights! You will be sure to impress your friends or family with your bookmaking skills when you show them this creation. An exposed stitching design on the spine of the book resembles a herringbone pattern.  This book is designed to lie flat when open which allows for ease in drawing or writing. Makes a great gift! Previous book making is recommended, but not required. Minimal supplies are necessary to continue making beautiful books at home. Class sizes are limited.    Fri May 12,   1 - 4:30    $65/$5 materials (Assorted papers will be available for purchase if you need for your signatures, see supply list for more information.)
