    Mine says “Starting Soon” but it looks like I missed it.
    Is there a way to watch it recorded?

    Thank you sooooo much. Very interesting – can’t wait to get started!

    Nice presentation. I’ve had a lot of problems with rivets. You cleared up several issues for me. Thanks!

    For the magnetic rivets: Can these be hidden? I’ve seen this done on a leather handbag that I have. Thanks for this video – terrific info.

    is there a place om your site that specifies what size rivets/supplies to use for each bag, after we’ve made initial pattern/kit

    do you have rivets in different materials, like stainless steel or brass?

  10. Terasa Plumlee

    I find it difficult to find high end rivets, closures, and other parts. The type you see on designer bags. Can you share where we can find them?

  11. Linette Smith

    When using rivets in handwoven fabric what do you suggest as an additional backing for the fabric?


    My internet is getting bad again. I will view this later. Thank you for sharing your wonderful tips.


    Besides stone is wood considered a hard surface? I am curious about the appropriate hard surfaces to use for this.

  14. Mary Goettelmann

    I have a flagstone patio in garden. Would this qualify as a hard surface or is it likely to damage the flagstone.

  15. Otealua Jones

    I have a hand press, is there an extra piece needed with the hand press to set tubular rivets?


    Hello. I am interested in doing bags with all materials.
    I have a business that I am starting which I create whatever I am in the mood for since my career test says I am artistic. Thank you for the tips. How do you sharpen a rotary punch?

    I hope to be able to view this at another time. I will be working at the time this airs.

    Where is the best place to buy leather/suede straps for bags in the US? (Quality/price/choice of colors)

    Would like to know how to put the following closure on a handbag:

    – Rectangular Metal Press Push Lock Bag Briefcase Spring Lock Snap Decorative Clasps Closure

    – rectangle eyelets lock hanger for bags hardware

  20. Zoe Gilda

    If one generally prefers #5 zippers over #3 dress zippers, what seam allowance adjustments are needed to insert the zipper as a top closure in a simple pouch? Thank you.

  21. Jannie

    Does thin, soft leather need to be interfaced in order to make a sturdy handbag? If the answer is yes, how should it be done?

    • Unni Vindheim

      Looking forward to this. Hope to learn a lot about how to create a beautiful bag
