Coptic Stitch Class at Provo Art & Frame

I'll be teaching the Ethiopian Coptic Stitch at the studio above Provo Art & Frame. The class goes from 6 - 8:30 pm and the $25 class fee includes all the materials you'll need to make your book. You'll design, create and keep your own book!

The coptic stitch book will open flat for maximum use of the pages. It works great for sketchbooks, photo albums and journals. It's also a nice book for recipes because you don't have to hold it open while cooking in the kitchen and it works great as a wedding guestbook too.

If you'd like to attend the class, please sign up by emailing me at

Please bring the following tools:

Cutting mat (or old magazine to cut on)
x-acto type craft knife or utility knife
Metal Edge Ruler
Bonefolder (available at Provo Art & Frame, ask or a student discount for taking my class)
