Lovers of handmade, make your mark with Pam Carriker's debut stamp line to infuse your own signature style.

Longstitch, 2 Ways Class with Diana Trout

Learn the Longstitch with a twist! In this class, you'll create 2 books using the simple, flexible longstitch. One book (5 1/2" x 6") will have an exposed spine with papercloth woven into the warp that is created from the stitch. The other book will be a bit larger 8"x5" with a wrapped softcover. You can use my free papercloth tutorial for the covers for these books.
Clear instructions are great for beginners. Seasoned binders will find a nice twist. PDF's, videos, flickr site. All of my online classes are permanent access to a private blog. $40.00.
