Crawford Waxed Linen Thread: Special Offer

by Susan Green December 10, 2018

Crawford Waxed Linen Thread 4 ply for Bookbinding

Hello fellow bookbinders! I'm running a special offer on Crawford waxed linen bookbinding thread until the 20th of December. You can buy 3 colour-themed packets for the price of 2, which saves you £7.50. Enter code LINEN18 at checkout.

Each packet contains 3 colours of 4 ply waxed linen thread, 5 yards of each. If you just want one colour, buy a Custom packet to get a whole 15 yards of just that colour that you need. 

Crawford 4 ply Waxed Linen Thread for Bookbinding

I use this waxed linen thread for almost all of my books: it's the perfect thickness for exposed spine styles such as the Longstitch, Japanese Stab Stitch, Coptic and Secret Belgian bindings. It can also be used for simple Pamphlet stitches and other crafts such as beading, weaving, macrame and leatherwork.
