Long Stitch Book Binding with Sylvia Tomayko-Peters

IMG_2110.jpg

Make a luxurious, softcover journal with a leather wrapped cover. In this workshop, we'll learn to bind a book from scratch using the "Italian Long Stitch" method, an age-old book making technique. Because long stitch books allow for heavyweight paper and the pages lie flat when open, they make the perfect journals for writing or sketching. We’ll cover techniques for preparing paper and sizing leather for a wrap around cover, sewing the beautiful exposed long stitch binding, and finishing with details such as a tie closure or embroidery. All materials and tools are provided. If you'd like a vegan alternative to leather, please let us know in advance. Materials fee: $10

The Runaway Bag with Ellen Mason

Sew your own lined project bag for your knitting!  The Runaway Bag is a quick and deceivingly easy lined project bag. No fasteners, no fiddling, just a handy bag with flaps that tie. New to sewing? No worries, this class is open to all levels! Materials: 1/2 yard of exterior fabric, 1/2 yard of interior fabric for lining. Quilting cotton works well. We can provide sewing machines, but please let us know if you are able to bring your own.

Saturday Afternoon Session - 2 pm to 5 pm

Sew an Apron with Ellen Mason

Sew an apron that's modern and charming, inspired by today's Japanese pattern designs, but cut to fit up to a 46-inch bust. No ties for this tunic length number -- instead, the two sides of the back overlap, held in place by simple, straight up-and-down shoulder straps. Make one up in some darling calico for household chores, or sew one in linen for a hip cover-up, suitable for lunch with friends. Bring your sewing machine if you can, but if not, we will have several extra machines available.

Block Printing & Sew a Basic Book with Sylvia Tomayko-Peters

P1090933.JPG

Using simple tools and easily found materials, this workshop marries the ancient arts of book binding and block carving. In the first half of the class, we'll learn to hand carve and print stamps. Then, we'll use our printed papers in the construction of a simple saddle stitch notebook, made by hand from start to finish. Everyone will take home a finished book and their own rubber block stamp. All materials and tools are provided. Materials fee: $10
