Greetings Friends,

 

Here we are in the holiday season!  Finally!  That means that many of us are busy planning/making all the fun leather gifts we’ll be giving to friends and family, or trying to think of that perfect gift for your leathercrafting friend, (Hint: Tandy Leather Gift Cards!)  To that end, we’ll be dedicating our Saturday Class times for December to project days.  Project days are a chance for you to come in and get help, praise or constructive criticism on your current project.  We are always gentle but honest.  Or just come and hang out in our store, amidst the many other passionate leathercrafters in your area.  Networking is great!

 

As always, I’m available to answer any questions, as well as demonstrate/explain the full range of our product line.  We can also use this as a planning opportunity in terms of time management and execution of those projects.  And of course, I have plenty of tricks of the trade to share!

 

There’s a lot to do in the next few weeks, and this is a cold weather craft, so let’s get those warm coats out, fully stock our workshops, and get busy making some truly memorable and lasting gifts!

 

I look forward to seeing you and helping in any way possible.

 

Cheers!

 

~Jaimi
