Bookbinding Long Stitch German Binding by Angela 20th December 2008 written by Angela 20th December 2008 I made this book as a practice exercise to see if I could remember how to do the stitch from the Bookbinding Course I did 2 years ago. The course no longer runs but they do run a one day course in altered books now.

I think I would miss a few key points if i just winged it! looks good! :o) Reply Angela 5th January 2009 - 10:32 pm Thanks Phoenix. It does fray the nerves a little when you are sewing it (through the hard spine) and the thread knots on you – plenty of shrieking! If you are very keen to learn (or just a glutton for punishment!) there is a similar version in : Volume I Non-Adhesive Binding:Books Without Paste or Gluehttp://www.keithsmithbooks.com Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
