Item details

This handmade wooden bookbinding sewing punch cradle is collapsible, making it great for travel and easy storage.

Measuring 4 ¾” tall x 7“ wide x 12” long when assembled, this cradle can hold up to a 10 ½” tall signature for hole placement.

My wooden collapsible sewing cradle comes in a custom-sewn drawstring fabric bag for storage or travel and includes an insert sheet with the easy assembly instructions and care.

I laser cut each piece from Birch 1/4" plywood and hand-finish each one with a water-based wood finish stain to enhance the wood grain. This cradle’s design allows the four pieces to slip together smoothly for use and slide apart and stack for travel.  So handy for working in your home studio where space is at a premium or for traveling to bookbinding workshops!

A sewing cradle, also called a punch cradle, is a trough-like structure used to accurately create holes in a book signature’s fold.  For bookbinders making multi-signature books, a sewing cradle can ensure your holes will line up perfectly for stitching every time.

Whether you are making a single-signature, pamphlet-style book or stacking multiple signatures for a Coptic-bound book, our unique sewing cradle will give you the ‘third hand’ you need for bookbinding success!  

Feel free to convo me with any questions about the cradle and its use!
