I have been doing leather work on and off since the 1970's. I took leathercrafting in Junior High School. I like designing my own version of holsters, especially for law enforcement. I hand sewed everything until about 3 years ago when I purchased a Tippman Aerostitch. After much practice, I learned to use it. I like collecting patterns/craftaids for use in my work. I am always open for new techniques and learning in general.
