Make your own Notebook with our newly relaunched Kit

NEW for summer 2017! The long established Crumps Barn Studio notebook kit has had a relaunch. We are very pleased to present the kit in its new compact packaging – the perfect little parcel for yourself or a gift for your friend.

This make it yourself Notebook kit is the original Crumps Barn Studio step-by-step kit from our bookbinding studio in the Cotswolds, UK. With this kit you will make your own hardback notebook and learn a traditional bookbinding stitch. Everything you need is included in the kit except for PVA glue, a mixing pot and a glue brush.

This is a great way for beginners and confident crafters to learn traditional bookbinding. The technique we use in the kit is the same as the method we use in our own workshop to bind our printed works.

What’s our hot tip? Press your newly bound book for 24hrs by placing it under something heavy. This will keep it crisp and smart while the glue dries. You’ll be impressed with the finished notebook!
