TIP: Use a clip to hold the thread when starting sewing, but be careful to move the thread if it is entangled in the clip.


TIP: Use a strong adhesive to stick the covers in the jute, that will be a pocket also.


TIP: pull tight the thread every time you’re adding a booklet, and you’ll see how pretty it is at the end. You can use this system with any sheet size!
