Binding Recommendation

I strongly recommend having your favorite pattern books spiral-bound.

Most of the craft books (knitting, twining, and quilting) are soft bound.The books aren't too practical when I need to actually use them. Often the binding becomes broken from my attempts or it slips all over the table or off of my lap.

Once I discovered that I could have the books spiral-bound at Kinkos, my books are in better shape and I am much happier.

Personally, I wish publishers would produce these books with spiral bindings.


  1. Thank is a good idea, especially for my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler book.

  2. I too think the publishers should ship spiral-bound but then also thought it would cost more to ship because the spirals will get bent, etc. Sooo, I think we are just going to have to do it ourselves. I choose the ones I think I am going to use the most to spiral bind. Sometimes I even put 2-3 together if they are small ones.

  3. what a cleaver idea!!! May I ask approximately how much does it cost to have one of these books rebound with a spiral binding??

    I know of 2 favorite books I'd have rebound with spirals... ;) thanks for sharing!!!

    You should send this in as a tip to Fons & Porter!!! they give free magazine subscriptions to any ideas & tips that they use... :)

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie
