Learn the Long Stitch book Binding Method
In a longstitch binding, the sections and cover are sewn simultaneously, so the sewing becomes part of the design. The longstitches on the spine can be treated in a number of ways, even wrapped or braided. Beading, silk or metallic thread, and knotting can be added to the stitches as they are sewn or can be worked on afterward by pinching them together and using embroidery stiches. Various lengths and number of stitches can be used. For this class, you will strengthen the spine by gluing on a strip of linen before making the sewing holes.
