   The name "Long and Link Stitch" applies to a group of similar sewing techniques and structures that are relatively simple to make.  They were used extensively in Europe in the middle ages, but have modern applications as well.  Participants in this two day course will make as many models as time allows.

Betsy Palmer Eldridge apprenticed as a bookbinder in Hamburg, Germany, studied finishing with Jules Fache in Paris, and worked in conservation with Carolyn Horton and Associates in New York in the 60s.
