Give your tired leather goods new life by creating something repurposed and ready to be loved! We’ll be learning how to hand-saddlestitch a coin pouch, clutch, zippered pouch or card holder out of recycled leather. Do you have an old leather coat that has been sitting around unused? Or perhaps you’re getting rid of a leather sofa and want to save some of it? If you don’t have any leather goods you can part with, no worries, pieces will be available for purchase (bring small bills.) Bring your clean used leather – from jackets, duffels, pillows or couches. Vegan leather (vinyl or thicker ultrasuede types) welcome. A small zipper or magnetic clasp and scrap leather will be provided. Shared tools will be available but you can bring your own scissors or rotary knife if you like.
