Book Binding / Coptic Stitch Workshop

I had the absolute pleasure of attending this workshop last weekend. It was such a fun day of learning new stitches and making our own notebooks. Amanda from Squushed had a wide range of papers and cover sheets to choose from, and it meant that each notebook made was very personal and one of a kind. There was a great deal of deliberation over paper choice, colours and pattern and Amanda encouraged us to be selective and creative making the whole experience enjoyable. This workshop was a gift from my friend, and what a gift, not only good memories made but heading home with my new lovely notebook 😊

Fantastic workshop

I recently attended a Coptic book binding workshop, and it was an exceptional experience from start to finish. The workshop was incredibly well-organized and informative.
The instructor was not only knowledgeable but also passionate about the art of Coptic binding.
The materials provided were of high quality, ensuring that our finished products were both beautiful and durable. We were given a variety of cover papers, threads, and tools to work with, allowing for a lot of creative freedom.
We even got to make a little pamphlet stitch notebook. It was a pleasure to connect with fellow participants and admire each other's work.

I highly recommend this workshop to anyone interested in bookbinding or looking to try something new and creative.
Thank you Amanda from Squushed for a fantastic day ❤️

Thank you N for that fantastic review! Delighted you enjoyed the day, and your finished journal is just beautiful. It was a pleasure to see your creativity and joy working with the different papers! ❤️
