Ethiopian Double Needle Coptic Stitch Class

October 19th, 2012
5pm - 8pm

Provo Art & Frame

201 W Center Street in Provo, UT

The Ethiopian coptic stitch dates back to the 4th century. It's a beautiful book with an exposed spine in which you can see the sewing of the pages. 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.

All levels of expertise welcome including beginners! Ages 10+ for this class.

Class fee is $50 which includes all the materials you'll need for the book you make and keep!

Students need to bring the following tools:

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