Hi! I am remaking a SBB project that has been on the side for a long time
and I am trying to remember whether you sew the book block first or weave
the boards and spine together, and then sew the bookblock to the boards. My
recollection is that we sewed the block first, putting some spacers in where
the attachments would lace through, and then wove the cords that connected
the boards and spine second. I found directions on the 'Net and it has it
the other way 'round.

Can anyone help here?

Thanks!
