I'm originally a Philly boy and lived around the pretzel factory on Federal St., YO. I have been doing leather work for a long time and have become serious about it in the last three years. I have exhibited at some of the local juried Fine Art fairs. I like to specialized in some of the classic carving techniques and have been completing my projects by hand sewing. I would like to know if I could drop by with some examples of my work and If you could have any suggestions on brand and type of sewing machine that would help me when I ramp up productions to full show orders.
Tandy just came out with their Craftool Pro Stitchmaster machine...too new and appears to have a limited thread selection. This will be a big investment and I want something that is versatile, dependable, and affordable +- $1700.
