I am happy to announce the launch of my classroom series, “Making Leather Bags” on   It is kind of like studying Leather 101.

I’ll be showing how to work with leather, how to plan and construct your own leather handbag styles, and how to customize it to make it your own. This is not traditional leather-crafting but mass-production methods using your own domestic sewing machine. I show how to create one-of-a-kind bag designs using leather and share some tricks of the trade right from the factory floor.

I hope you will enjoy this class as much as I enjoyed making it for you.

      i am offering a promo code if you order your leather from my friends at Kyson Leathers.

      • I just ordered from them today. Although I missed the promo code, they gave me a good deal since I have a tax id. I am really enjoying your class.

      • Cant wait to take the class! I just received some leather samples from Kyson today after finding them here on your blog, and it’s awesome! I would gladly take the promo code if you still offering it, since I want to order some!
