Learn to sew an exposed-spine Coptic book in this one day workshop! This classic stitch is versatile, incredibly strong and a must-have in your book binding repertoire. The Coptic stitch lends flexibility and durability to the spine and allows your book to lie completely flat. The standard Coptic stitch can be easily combined with other exposed-spine bindings.

Bring any materials that you would like to incorporate on your covers. Paper, thread, needles, bookboard, and glue provided.
