Hi! My name is Jon. I am the manager of a growing leather shop in Castroville,TX called Spartan Custom Leather. We are being blessed with an overabundance of work orders and are searching for anyone in the San Antonio, Castroville, Hondo, Lytle, Natalia area that would like to make some money making quality leather products. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Our shop number is 830-388-1907 Thank you
I'm looking to get rid of my consew 227. I've had it for a year now, used it to make bags and wallets. I'm in need of something that can sew thicker leather, as the 227 is comfortable at 1/4 inch. I just had it serviced at IMSCO in san antonio, and it's working smooth. New hook, stitch regulator works. It's on a custom stand with casters. $1,000.00 or best offer. I can deliver up to an hour away for an extra $50. Anything more and you'll need to come get it yourself. http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c287/purezit/IMG_20150103_170309539.jpg -Alden
Greetings everyone! My name is Paul Alfred, and I am a new member here. I took an interest in leatherworking from my father, who used to run a taxidermy shop. Often he would have extra buckskin left over and would use it to make wallets, pouches, bags, backpacks, etc. I loved watching him make these things, and I enjoyed "helping" (often it was less than helpful, I'm sure). Years later, while I was in the US Air Force, I found out that a mentor of mine was also a saddler. When I mentioned my interest in leatherworking he began taking me to his shop and showing me the ropes. I enjoyed working with him, and with the leather, and I learned much over the next three years before deployments, and life, took me away to far and distant places. I have an interest in two types of leatherworking primarily. First is Medieval and Celtic leatherworking, for use at SCA and Renaissance Festival events. I have no intention of making leather armor (cool stuff, but not my thing). Instead, I enjoy making more practical things; bags, pouches, belts, book covers, etc. I also enjoy drawing Celtic knotwork, and many of my bits of artwork are drawn for leatherworking projects. My second interest in leatherworking is for reenacting, be it Celtic/Viking (or possibly Roman) items, or American Civil War and Texas Frontier items. I am starting to learn how to do classic Western leatherwork tooling, and hope to be able to create pieces for SASS members as well (I have a few friends in the SASS who are kindly asking me to learn this, lol). As of yet, I do not have a website. I have one under construction, though it will be at least a few weeks before it is up. I do have a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/alfredleatherworks), a Google+ (https://plus.google.com/u/1/113615960789211711186/posts), and a Twitter account (https://twitter.com/AlfredLworks). Once the website is up I'll post it here for y'all to take a look at. Also, I thought I'd post a couple pictures of me, just for fun.
