  1. Hello Ray - I checked out your website. Magnificent creations. I will try to contact Steve. Thanks
  2. What’s you are saying is get our there, talk with people, get involved. Amazing what you might learn, what opportunities might exist etc. Thanks, I think I needed that prompting.
  3. Thank you, you have given ideas and great input. I don’t know why I haven’t visited area leathercraft shops but I just did a google search and found some nearby that I’m going to checkout and follow your advice. I live in Red Wing, MN and we have a boot manufacturer and tannery here and I thought they would be good resources but their pretty big and I kind of struck out. Didn’t think of locating the leathercraft shops and visiting them. How bad is that? Anyway thank you all for taking the time to offer your ideas and suggestions. Genuinely appreciate this resource.
  4. Thank you both for your help. I did read the entire Wizcraft post and it answered a lot of my questions. Man is that guy knowledgeable.I think I’ll focus on finding a used Consew or possibly consider the Cowboy Outlaw. I’m to old and don’t have the motivation to turn this into a business (probably not good enough either)
  5. I'm fairly new to leatherwork and enjoy it immensely. Being retired it gives me something to look forward to everyday. But lately my hands have started to give me significant problems and so I've been considering getting a sewing machine. The belts I make are hand=stitched mostly using 8-10 oz Hermann Oak leather. I am also making wallets, purses and would like to get into clothing items (hats, vests, etc.). This is not a business, just a hobby and I'm really not in a position to spend a lot of money so I've been looking at the used market and since I'm not a sewing machine expert I get pretty confused. This I know, I would like a nice looking stitch, be able to sew 3/8" to 1/2" thick veg tanned leather, and use pretty thick thread. Speed is not important. Any idea's out there? Thanks
  6. Still available? Live in Red Wing, can drive to Renville and pick up! Thanks
