Learn the Coptic Bookbinding Stitch and Make your own Journal! ‎


In this class you will use the Coptic stitch to make your own journal. Used from as early as the 2nd century AD, Coptic bindings are characterized by one or more sections or signatures, of parchment, papyrus, or paper sewn through their folds, and attached to each other with chain stitch linkings across the spine.

This is a great method for creating books with covers that are individual boards instead of completely wrapped around the entire journal. You are basically binding all the signatures and covers together with a connected stitch that holds everything together tightly, but with super flexibility. The pages will open up completely flat and that’s a big reason why this method is so popular!

Everything you need to make your journal is provided and pre-cut and pre-drilled so you can focus on stitching it all together.

There will be a selection of cigar box covers to chose from and you will go home with a completed journal.

Fee: $60 per person (includes ALL materials)

Pre-Registration is required: Contact Richard at pollocknel@aol.com
Limited to 6 participants

Think Ink!


Think Ink is a simple interactive event to help you learn about fountain pen inks and to help you keep your fountain pens writing flawlessly. We'll discuss ink history, what your ink is made of, ink flow and just about everything else that pertains to fountain pen ink.
Think of it as a good dose of common sense about the liquid that you
run through your fountain pens.

We will not be discussing any specific ink makers, nor will there be discussion about your favorite ink color.

The presentation runs about 45 minutes and there will be time at the end for Q&A.

Fee:FREE!

Sam Fiorella is co-owner of Pendemonium and has been using fountain pens for over 50 years. Prior to founding Pendemonium, she spent 15 years selling fine pens and stationery in the Washington D.C. area.
Sam is a member and past president of the Pen Collectors of America and was the Reference Librarian for the Society of Inkwell Collectors for many years. For the curious, her first pen was a Sheaffer cartridge filler received as a gift in 1960!
