Back in 7th grade (yikes 16 years ago) we had to bind a book.  It ws part of the ciriculum.  because for our 7th grade year we divided and focus on a "core" either natural science or washington or preforming arts.  So I picked natural science.  We had to bind a book for our findings.  drawing flowers and such.  well the made us make this contraption and it was easy to bind a book using it.  it had a flat bottom two sicks on the side and a dowel rod acoross it and you put strings from the dowel rob to the bottom. 

did anyone else do this?  am I the only one?  well I really wanted to know if anyone knew what I was talking about so I can get the plans to make one of those contraptions and directions on how to use it.

It sounds like you're talking about a sewing frame.  I own a commercially made one, but find that unless I'm doing some kind of edition binding, all the set up for a sewing frame takes way longer than it takes to just sew a book off the frame using some kind of link stitch.  That's just me-- your mileage may vary. 

Cool!  I made the Best of 2009 twice!   Check 'em out!
