Hi everyone! Due to popular demand, I am offering my long and link handout for sale online. Fork over five buckaroos (UK friends, that is almost £0!) and I will email you your very own PDF. Included in this handout: preparation instructions and a sewing diagram for the basic long and link stitch, ideas for sewing and spine design variations, instructions on several techniques for creating the wrapper. Although these instructions are detailed, this handout was created to be supplemental to my demonstrations (so buy at your own risk!)
I owe a debt of gratitude to Anna Embree, bookbinding professor at the University of Alabama MFA in the Book Arts Program and Julie Leonard, bookbinding professor at the Center for the Book at the University of Iowa.
