I am currently working with two groups: a new Leathcrafters Club that I started out of our church, and a 4H Leathercrafters Club. While I personally have bought about 5 of everything, the 4H group boasts over 10 kids (hooray! more youth in the craft!!) and tonight I found myself overwhelmed trying to give them a basic carving/tooling a rose lesson (on rounders). If you or someone you know have the basic beveler (textured or plain), pear shader (ditto) or backgrounders, I could sure put them to good use. I have more than enough wood mallets, but would welcome some poly mallets. We are also fairly well stocked with swivel knives. I have a local man donating marble pieces, which has been a real Godsend. We also could make use of basic kits if you have any sitting around you'll not be using.

So there's my "beg" for the time being :) Thanks for the patience in reading it!

wildrose,

i have some tools that were given to me, but i dont do any carving.

theres about 11 stamps
2 mallets (wood type. i havent seen these before)
1 mallet w/leather head
1 straight swivel knife
1 angled swivel knife

i also have 3 purse/bag kits. contets dont list any tool, other then lacing needles. the kits look like something out of the 70s.

only condition is. if you dont want to use them, pass them on for free. its also all or nothing.
