***15% off for Brokelyn readers– just use code BROKELYN at checkout!***

In this class we’ll tackle long-stitch bookbinding, a method that has been used as far back as the 18th century. In just two hours we’ll cover basic bookbinding techniques and terminology, from sizing and folding paper to the final assembly process and everything in-between. Take your pick of a variety of high-quality leathers in fun colors (don’t worry, we’ll have neutrals, too!), as well as binding thread in black or white.

No experience or prior knowledge of bookbinding is necessary to take this class! We’ll teach you everything you need to know from start to finish to take home one 6″x9″ DIY leather journal (complete with a fold-over closure and pencil holder!)– and the skills to make more books on your own.

We’re happy to announce that we’ll be offering a 15% discount to our fellow Brokelyn readers!! Just use code BROKELYN at checkout!!! See you there! <3
