    How did you get into leather work?

    My girlfriend had a bag of which the thread holding the zipper had come loose... After 3 days of youtube watching on stitching I decided to give it a go... been "hooked" since Top line was my first ever stitching The bag is still in use today.

    Stitching pliers thoughts?

    Thank you for your review! I am checking delivery every day for mine... but still "underway" as of 3 minutes ago. Just curious, what kind of leather (thickness) do you use? what kind of needles/thread?

    Good day all, Can anybody point me in the direction of suppliers of Latigo leather in Europe? The only one I seem to be able to find is Tandy and there the choice is limited to 1 type in burgandy. Hoping for some choices! Greetings, Tom

    Curious to find out what your experiences will be. I also am in the same situation and ordered 2 but mine were quite a bit more expensive.

    Custom haberdashery.

    Good day all, I was wondering if anybody has contacts/pointers for a custom haberdashery maker? Looking to get "chicago screws" and "sam browne studs" made out of material not readily available. Feel free to PM me if you got any other questions. Greetings.

    Chicago Screws

    Abbey England (UK based) or Boomsma (NLD) are the ones I use for my Chicago screws.
  10. Abbey is a great shop! They do have the "full" bras hardware where most of what I can find here in the Netherlands seems to be plated. When I created my account with them I just put in "lifestyle" and the next day I received confirmation of my account.
