Thanks for sharing.
I learned the coptic stitch before any other type of bookbinding, so it's what I always go back to. Thanks for the new link!
I started with coptic stitch too, and I still love it, though I often choose to make sewn-on-the-spine books now. Coptic stitch also lends itself to fancy stitching on the covers, either as part of the sewing using extra holes or separately but using the same type of thread.
Here's a crystal-clear vid as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GM4iFrGSzlY
Thank you for the link, Observe Closely--I might actually "get" this sometime!
The video Observe Closely gave you--his youtube channel was the one I used for the first coptic stitch journal I made (used his first example), but this new one she gave you is even clearer. I've only made a few journals but I love coptic stitch because it lies so flat and you can make covers out of about anything you can punch holes in. Have fun, Kate! :)
We'd love your feedback...please share your thoughts!
