Program: Buttonhole Binding presented by Elissa Campbell

Buttonhole Binding

The buttonhole binding is a wonderful structure to learn because it’s quick, easy, and your book will lay flat when opened. We’ll be using Keith Smith‘s directions from Non-Adhesive Binding, Volume I (a great book, I highly recommend it). Once you learn the basics, this binding has a lot of potential for personalization. If you have done this binding before, please bring in your samples to share with the group.

Please bring the following tools/materials if you have them (I will have a limited quantity of these items available for use):

  • Ruler
  • Cutting mat
  • X-Acto knife
  • Glue stick
  • Awl
  • Sewing needles
  • Pencil
  • Sewing cradle (see what this is here)
