Just a reminder of the things that you'll need for your next book:

  • Prepared covers using your favourite substrate - canvas, flexi-firm or mill board
  • Thread for sewing - perle cotton, waxed linen thread, fine crochet thread, fibres of your choice.
  • Tapes for sewing over - about 3/4 to 1" wide.  The length is your choice - you determine how much you want to show on the front and back covers.  The tape material should be sturdy so feel free to fuse layers together if you are using a soft fabric.  My sample book used pieces of leather 1" wide and 5" long.  I wanted about 2" inches showing on each cover.  Remember:  You can always make it shorter once you've finished sewing the signatures together.
  • At least 5 signatures for sewing -- the more you have the more attractive the stitching looks.
