I am not new to sewing, but I will be new to working with leather. I recently acquired a Consew machine and I am waiting for some missing parts to complete the machine. I will need to address some timing issues and with the assistance of this site, which has already pointed me in the right direction, I am certain I can make the adjustment(s) and get that squared away. I also have a box of hand tools for leatherwork, handed down to me by my grandfather, that I am excited to take a closer look at and put to good use. I only found this site two weeks ago and I am grateful and astounded due to all the helpful information and excellent project results you have all shared. Thank you!
