Stitch A Journal

Journal by Aperture Agog

The {NewNew}Team on Governors Island presents another craft workshop! Saturday afternoon on July 16th from 2-4 pm you can find Pria, Jean, Melissa, and myself on Governors Island on the porch of Better Than Jam's outpost in Nolan Park stitching up some journals using the stab stitch binding technique. Once you have mastered this technique you'll be able to re-purpose any and all scrap papers you may have lying around the house. Careful, this craft is terribly addicting.  If you can't make it to the island, or want to practice binding a journal before you come to the island, check out this demonstration by Tia of Primrose Press that was recorded by the Eco Etsy Team when they visited New York a few weeks ago.
