Q&A with Beaverhead

daelon asked:
never made a leather bag, i think i will try this project, any advise on what kind of leather fabric and, or where to buy. great job, thank u.
Beaverhead answered:
If you've never sewn leather before, you should really take Don's class. If you have a commercial leather machine, you can sew whatever the machine will handle. If you have a regular fabric sewing machine, get the thinnest leather possible. If you take Don's class, he has a discount you can use at a reputable leather company. I would recommend www.leatherhidestore.com, or their Ebay store stores.ebay.com/Kyson-Leather.
