We will make a small (3.5×5”) book with caterpillar stitch binding. While this stitch is uniquely decorative, it also binds the text block and covers together to create the book. There will be two options: a straight caterpillar stitch or a curved caterpillar stitch. Both designs are pictured above.
This workshop is for all interested bookmakers; no experience is necessary. We will meet for 8 hours over two days: Saturday, Sept 11 from 10am to 2pm and Sunday, Sept 12 from noon to 4 pm. If you choose the curved stitch option, it’s possible you won’t complete the book in a weekend, as it requires twice the amount of stitching. But once you get the pattern down, you will be able to finish on your own.
