Dawn Kalies, a long -time member of the Madison Bonefolder’ Guild, will demonstrate the art of Japanese stab binding. The binding is beautifully featured on the front and back covers of the book. Participants will make a traditional stab pattern notebook using waxed linen thread and traditionally decorated sumi paper for pages. They will then learn a modern Tiara stab technique using waxed linen thread on a leather cover using Aida cloth for pages. The Aida cloth can then be cross stitched as you like it. Participants will receive a kit for each book with covers and pages already cut to size and sewing holes already made. Your time will be spent on actual book sewing. Anyone comfortable with a needle will be successful.
Kit Fee: $12
