Simple Sewing Frame for Bookbinding – $55

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.

Quality Construction

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 smooth and professional finish.

The upper bar is adjustable for height and the vertical rods come off for easy storage or transport.

Simple free “keys” are provided, that are actually large “butterfly” style paperclips that work very well.  If you want the traditional keys, they are available elsewhere on the internet.

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.
