Your instructions were perfect for the coptic binding.  As a matter of fact, I have attempted this a few times with other teachers, and with you, for the first time EVER, I did it!

+ You can follow along with me from start to finish.

I just finished my first Coptic Bound Journal. The instructions were clear, and Amy provided both written printouts and video lessons, so whatever your learning style, it’s a fun workshop! I was so happy with my final product! I highly recommend this class!

Do I need prior sewing or book binding experience to participate?

I’ve designed this class so that any and everyone can make their own beautiful hand sewn journal. 

What are the materials?

You will need:

Bone folder – for neatly folding paper for book signatures, 6 inches pointed at one end

Awl – for piercing holes in covers and signatures
Scissors – for cutting thread and paper for covers
Pencil – for marking holes

Binder clips – for holding covers and signatures together when marking

Bookbinding Needle – Size 20
Linen waxed thread
Chip board for covers

Watercolor paper – for signatures of book
Paper or cloth – for covers
PVA glue
Parchment or wax paper – for putting between
your covers and some heavy books for drying

Ink or watercolor paint

Cotton or acrylic string or similar

Decorative paper for covers (if desired)

Embroidery floss for cover (if desired)

Paper cutter (Or you can use a ruler and an
Xacto knife) – for cutting all papers to size

Ruler – I have a small 6 inch ruler that I find handy for the small books

Optional: I also use a quilting ruler simply because I am not the most exact person, and I find the clear grid very helpful for being more precise.

What is your refund policy?

Because of the nature of digital products, I cannot offer refunds, regardless of the circumstances. Please look over the classes carefully and reach out if you still have questions – I’m happy to help!

How long do I have access?

You can access your class materials via your Dashboard on my site. Your class consists of  instructional videos, and downloadable PDF guides. Both take you step-by-step through the process. My classes with videos and downloadable PDFs are all one year access.
