Embroidered Hardcover Books

Making hardcover books doesn’t have to be tricky! Spend the evening embroidering a cover, and learning how to hand bind a single-leaf hardcover book with bookbinder, writer and arts educator Lindsay Zier-Vogel. Bring along a simple line drawing to embroider onto Nepalese paper (that is incredibly forgiving to stitch) and we’ll create one-of-a-kind books that you’ll be able to make a home.
