Some say that a sequel is never as good as the original – but not in this case!

In Leather Pocket Journals Part II, you’ll learn 5 bindings (possibly more) that use only leather, paper, and thread – no glue needed! For each binding, you’ll sew 3 sections of folded pages into covers cut from one piece of leather.

These bindings are very flexible and allow the books to open completely flat, making them perfect for use as sketchbooks or journals.

Each sewing technique creates a different decorative sewing pattern on the spine and we’ll try out different closure methods. These sewings are different from the ones taught in Part I and you didn’t have to attend that class to sign up for this one.

No previous experience required – this is a great class for a beginner. You can even bring in your own leather to customize your book.

Cost: SPA Members $60 / Non-Members $70

Materials fee: $15.00 to the instructor

Supplies: Awl, bonefolder, metal ruler, X-Acto knife or utility knife, cutting mat, scissors, pencil.

Note: Bring the the supplies if you have them – don’t feel obligated to buy anything. I’ll have extras available.
