Longstitch Journal Kit


Learn some basic bookbinding skills as you make your very own Longstitch Journal. The Longstitch is an old type of sewn book where the sewing can be seen on the outside of the book’s spine. Refine your hand skills as you fold, thread your needle, and follow a historic sewing pattern. Finish your book by decorating the cover with the metallic Sharpies provided. Then you have a handmade journal to fill with your drawings, writings and thoughts!

This book is best for ages 10 and up.
