The Printing Museum says
The Longstitch sewing technique makes a great travel journal. The name comes from the long running stitches that go up and down the spine. Not only does this wide spine lay open flat, the five signatures of paper inside give you plenty of room for easy sketching and writing. Our second book will feature a beautiful technique call Tacket Binding. Tacketing is an exposed binding (the thread shows) that dates from the second century A.D. This is a cool detour from the Longstitch and, with your choice of cover paper, design, and stitching materials, your Tacket bound book will be worth the trip. It’s a great way to use up smaller papers and make nice gifts at the same time! If you have something special you want to use in or on your book, be sure to pack it!

Cost: $75 (includes materials)

Dates: Saturday, April 16th 2016; 1:00pm to 5:00pm
