About us

We value the beauty and strength of a well-made object. We love the connections we create through our work. We appreciate a hearty muffin and a good game of catch.

We are Molly Lewis and Michelle Johnson. Molly is the craftsperson behind all of our products, and Michelle manages the operation of Hinged Strung Stitched. (We do switch jobs with each other from time to time, however.) Together we have over 25 years of fine bookbinding experience. 


Follow us on Instagram @hingedstrungstitched to see what jobs we are working on this week.


Our studio is in the historic Olympic Mill Commerce Center, located in Portland's inner southeast. The building is big and yellow, our studio is small and blue. Please call or email if you would like to visit.
