Make-it yourself bookcloth fabrics

Nearly any cloth material can be used to cover books. It helps if the fabric is not too stretchy, and it must be able to take adhesive without seepage through the yarns. A huge range of patterned cottons is available, ready-cut in small quantities, from haberdashery outlets everywhere. We have a few samples available for sale. 

We can also design and print onto suitable cloths. Modern techniques provide excellent results from your own patterns or photographs. Some domestic ink-jet printers are capable of printing on prepared canvas-type fabrics. If you would like further information, then do enquire.
