I became interested in leather work about 10 years ago after I repaired a leather pouch given to me by my father in law. Everything is hand sewn – I’m often asked why I don’t use a sewing machine. For years I worked in noisy manufacturing plants and farming, now I find the quiet of hand sewing a contemplative practice. As much as I like the finished piece, the design and sewing are the most rewarding.
