[BKARTS] Long and Link Stitch Binding Workshop in NYC-May 14-15, 2004

Guild of Bookworkers NY Chapter Annouces:


with Pamela Spitzmueller

May 14 and 15, 2004

Friday and Saturday

9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

New York Academy of Medicine

Long and Link Stitch Bindings are beautiful and practical bindings that can be made with no equipment and only a few hand tools. Constructed without adhesives, the sewing thread connects the sections directly to the spine of the covering material. Both long and link stitches are used alone or in infinite combinations. Decorative punching and secondary sewing can vary the look of spines. Traditionally these bindings included a fore-edge flap and string tie to a decorative button on the spine. Workshop participants will make two bindings, 1 set piece and one of your own design. Participants should bring folded sections to save time and to be sure we finish both books. Pam will also show models and slides of historic long and link stitch bindings. Space is limited to ten participants.

Pamela Spitzmueller is the Chief Conservator for Special Collections in the Harvard University College Libraries where she directs the Special Collections Conservation Lab in the Weissman Preservation Center. Pam previously has worked in Rare Book Conservation at the University of Iowa Libraries, the Library of Congress, and the Newberry Library in Chicago.
