Stampaway 2013 — Chain Stitch Journal
I was honored to teach this workshop on the first day of workshops at Stampaway 2013, Wednesday, August 7.
Every journal made in this workshop was a one of a kind! How fun is that? Participants selected their cover paper from a wide variety of choices of beautiful screenprint paper made in Napal to create a 5 3/4” X 8 3/4”, 3 section, 48 page journal with an Italian book cloth spine. We used two colors of Irish waxed linen for the chain stitch binding. The chain stitch is an elegant and versatile binding that every bookbinder should know.
