Simple Sewing Frame
This simple and sturdy sewing frame can be used for sewing signatures on linen tapes or cords. It is also useful for repairing old books or binding new ones, “the way they used to do it.” This is an alternative method to sewing the signatures to each other and results in the strongest type of binding.
This sewing frame is made of cabinet grade 3/4″ plywood and covered with a waterproof plastic laminate (often used on kitchen counter tops and doctor’s offices). The laminate makes the surfaces easy to clean and it doesn’t warp over time or become rough from moisture. Edges are sanded and sealed with paste wax for a silky smooth and professional finish.
The upper bar is adjustable for height and the vertical rods come off for easy storage or transport. Simple keys are included to hold the tape or cord under the slot.
Sewing Frame Dimensions
- Side to side between bolts 13″
- Slot is 12-1/4″
- Under the upper bar 12″, which is adjustable
The bolts are 3/8″ with wing nuts.

Purchase this Simple Sewing Frame
This simple sewing frame and my other products are available for purchase on eBay. If you don’t see the simple sewing frame on eBay, or would like your own customized version, let me know through the contact page and I’ll help you however I can.
Please Note: The color of the laminate on the press you receive will be different than the picture. To keep these presses as affordable as possible, I use excess pieces of laminate from my cabinet and counter top business. Wood grain is the most common pattern.
