  1. I’ve seen the list of Canadian suppliers pinned at the top of this thread. I’m wondering if anyone knows where I could find some veg tan off cuts or scraps for practicing on in Canada? I’m in Ontario in the KW region for anyone who would ask. I don’t know anyone else who is into leather working who I could ask for practice material. Facebook Marketplace and Kokomo haven’t been much luck yet either. Any leads are appreciated!
  2. Im learning about stitching chisels (which is a broad and overwhelming topic for a newbie), and trying to figure out what I need for my style of projects. I’d like to make small pouch-style projects for things like leatherman or Gerber multitools, as well as for various types of tool rolls. I’ve seen a number of videos and it looks like some people are using wider stitch sizes, about 3-4mm (shown below). I’m not making watch bands, so I don’t need tight groupings; I don’t want reduce the integrity of the leather. Based on what I’ve seen and read, I’m thinking of buying a #18 needle, a set of 3 or 4mm flat or diamond chisels, and using 6mm thread for these types of projects. If I’m way off base with some of this, please let me know
