A punching cradle is one of the essentials of any bookmaker’s kit. You’ll make your own collapsible cradle, perfect for carrying to meetings and workshops and easy to store at home. Use your new cradle to learn pamphlet stitch binding, an easy and practical sewing technique with seemingly infinite variations. You’ll go home with several small handmade books and a foundation in sewing books that you’ll use again and again.
