Sewing frame/sewing station



These two terms seem to have been confused here.  A sewing frame is a
device which holds cords/cloth tapes/thongs in place while text gatherings
are sewn to them.  Sewing stations are the places along a gathering where a
needle with its thread are passed from inside the gathering to the outside,
across the tape or around the cord/thong and back to the inside of the
gathering and along to the next sewing station.

Sewing frames are useful when one is sewing a number of copies of a book on
tapes at one time; less useful when sewing a number of copies on
cords/thongs, and not at all necessary when one is sewing a single copy of
a book on cords/thongs.  Sewing a single copy of a book on tapes is easier
on a frame.
