I know we've just had the Melbourne Cup but this is not about that kind of bookmaking. This is about a book-binding course held in Blenheim today.  Not strictly a Marlborough Weavers' event, but a number of our members were present and some used hand woven fabric for covers to good effect.  Felters outnumbered us though and produced some pretty amazing covers.
 Velvet on the left, handwoven on the right
 The technique we used was for exposed spines and we learned three different types of stitching.

This model has marbled endpapers . . . something else to try our hands at!
