Leather Boot Camp for the Shop Owner
(or anyone wanting to learn about creating with leather)

Looking for a way to bring excitement to your shop while driving new business? Leather is the answer.

The key components for a successful product launch in any shop are knowledge of the product and the passion for using it. This class offers both. It begins with an overview on leather, supplies and tools needed, followed by five different leather projects and each project is perfect for a beginner class in your quilt shop. The class ends with a trunk show of possibilities and a discussion on options for bringing leather to your shop. With the completion of the class, students have the foundation needed to create with leather on the home sewing machine and the tools needed to open up a whole new creative world for their customers.
