8-Needle Coptic Stitch Journal Kit


Sewing with 8 needles at once may sound like it’s difficult but it’s a surprisingly easy technique to learn: more repetitive than difficult. The gorgeous cover paper, the long, thin format and the complementary colors of waxed thread make this a dramatically beautiful journal! The rich text paper is a heavy weight so that your inks won’t easily bleed through as you write or draw. Opens flat for a comfortable experience.

About Coptic Stitch For Bookbinding

The Coptic stitch is easy to learn and it’s one of the most useful. Use it any time you want an exposed spine book that opens flat for writing and drawing. I especially like to come up with great color combinations for the binding thread and cover paper.
