All-Ligator sewing frame The most popular sewing frame in my classes at NBSS, and my favorite frame of all the ones I have seen or used.
Starrett Tools Maybe the best tool manufacturer in the world. Amazing rulers, dividers, pin vises, etc.
Art Essentials of New York Gold leaf, palladium, etc..
Chena River Marblers Papers, marbled cloth and also great instructors.
Colophon Book Arts Supply Sewing thread, cords, tapes. Their main emphasis is marbling supplies but they have a lot of binding supplies including PVA.
Cover Materials Sales Book cloths and other cover materials. They have a wide selection of filled and paper backed cloths. They have very low minimums — I think they’ll sell you a yard if that’s all you want.
Ecological Fibers Book cloths, with relative large minimum orders but really good prices. Also has binder’s board.
Gaylord General supplies including binder’s board, and thinner stock as well. They have a lot of stuff. They regularly have sales which sometimes include free shipping.
General Roll Leaf Stamping foils in almost every color. Very easy to deal with, with a sample card to help you decide.
Hewit Calf and goat skins. They are the source of the leather dyes I used to make my “moriki” as shown in this video. Also gold tooling glaire and all kinds of other supplies, tools and sundries. They gladly will sell direct to customers in the States which can be a deal. Shipping costs scare some folks from doing this but remember that Talas has very high shipping as well so it’s probably a better deal than you might originally think.
Hollander’s They have a nice range of supplies and tools, including cloth, leather and papers.
Kelly Paper The main paper I use in my classes is Mohawk Superfine, Eggshell finish, soft white, 80# text. I get that paper, plus wastepaper, boxes, etc. here.
Leather Conservation Centre Sellaset leather dyes, which weren’t being shipped to the States any more. Last I heard.
Sepp Leaf Gold, palladium, silver.
Talas Everything. Their selection and inventory has eliminated the need to carry much stock, which is extremely beneficial to those with limited space or money. High shipping costs, though, and it’s not easy to return items.
