I just wanted to add a link I found. It's video tutorials for about four different stab stitches, codex stitching and coptic stitching. I found it useful. Hope you do.

I've been looking up tutorials lately and found this one, for making very traditional-style hardbound books:

Thank you very much for these links! I've been looking for a solution to binding my scrapbook at the end of the year. I want to make my own covers so I've been trying to think of the best way to put it all together. I'll have to look into these.

I'm playing around with a few notebooks I'm making. I'm hoping to make them quick and easy, to sell at craft fairs for stocking stuffers. I got to the point where I need to set the textblock into the cover. I'm not wanting the signature to be seen at the back. The tute I found most helpful is the one by Jamie Butler. What is really helpful to me at this stage of my project is seeing how she used cloth to make tapes and a fabric "mull"..that's to glue the text block to the inside cover. This solved the issue I was having, because I don't want to see stitching on the spine.
BUT>>> Here's where I cheated... since I intend to sell these things somewhat cheap, I sewed the pages along the crease (2 sheets of 8.5x11 folded in quarters...total 8 pages per signature) WITH THE Sewing Machine! I am using a commercial machine, and #69 nylon thread. Perhaps the #46 I have is ok, but I am using my longest stitch. I backstich only once, starting with the needle 5/8"from the edge, and go backwards first. This prevents 3 layers of thread you get from typical backstitching. Then I pull the thread from the top thru the hole to the back. They can be tied together at the back of the signature. Afterwards, I use about 2 feet of the same thread, and a normal sized needle, and catch all the signatures together by running the needle under stitches, back and forth across the spine. I then glue the sets together, and put it under a heavy book to dry, also flattening out the text-block. So, I'm cheating! But this works real well, and it's fast. I don't have to poke holes. I should have one finished tomorrow, (today actually!) and I'll post it then. Anyway, thanks for listing the tutes, "cause now I know how to pull it all together. K

Thanks! I love trying out new bookbinding techniques.

If anyone is looking for a good-ol-fashioned book on bookmaking, my favorite is Kevin Smith's Non-Adhesive Binding Volume 1: Books Without Paste or Glue. I've had it for years and it's still one of the best bookbinding guides I've come across.

AWESOME idea!  I've used the machine to do the signatures in the past but couldn't figure out a great way to put them all together.  This sounds like exactly what I need.  Thanks for the ideas, 'cause now I know how to pull it all together too!!  Cheesy

I completely agree! You can pause them and work at the same time. I just learnt coptic binding from a really handy video on there so it get the thumbs up from me Smiley

http://www.craftstylish.com/item/13550/how-to-make-an-all-recycled-sketchbook Here is a tutorial to recycle old books to make your own book, using a sewing machine instead of hand-stitching and etc. It's a bit easier than the other ones I've looked at [I was really look at them for how to make a cover].
