I first came in contact with leather crafting from a 7th-grade shop class. My dad bought me a Tandy lucky seven starter kit. Forty years plus later I still have those original tools. I have left and come back to leather crafting over the years. I did a local market for the fall months, the last 4-- 5years. Mainly just honing my skills. This year I have gone on eBay, and have stopped going to the market. I miss the interaction with my customers, but I now have to use that time for producing the product. I as most leather craftsmen find solace in the craft. Leathercraft is my passion.
