6-Needle Coptic Stitch Binding Book Kit


Reminiscent of beautiful tin ceilings, this book kit features a heavily embossed English paper for the cover and a binding (6-needle Coptic) that takes 6 needles to sew! It’s a fun challenge and a beautiful book.

The text paper is 70 lb. so it’s nice and heavy. The finished book has 192 pages for writing out all your thoughts. The white paper is gorgeous but can be painted for durability.

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.
