Middlesex Bindery is a full service hand bindery located in Lowell, Massachusetts.

We are open

Our hours continue to be dictated by the reduced MBTA schedule and are currently roughly 9:30 am to 4:00 pm. Closed weekends. I’m trying to maintain a 4-day week, generally closed on Wednesdays but that varies by week.

Except when we’re closed

We will be closed from October 20, 2022 through November 2, 2022 to attend the Guild of Bookworkers annual conference. We will reopen on November 3, 2022 at normal hours.

Our services include:

  • hand bookbinding
  • book repair
  • paper repair
  • photo albums
  • guest books
  • portfolios
  • blank and custom journals
  • protective and decorative boxes
  • thesis binding – ask about our specials
  • ledgers
  • menu covers
  • individual and group classes

Classes and Workshops

We hope to restart classes as soon as possible, but right now, I don’t know when that will be. Join the mailing list, below, and expect an announcement when that happens. If you would like to attend a specific class, let us know what you’d like and we will try to accommodate you. Group and individual instruction is available.

Join our mailing list. Mailings are extremely rare, but they do happen.
