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

    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.

    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?

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

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

    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?

    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.

    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?
