Hello again to one and all, we welcome you to our blog and hope you enjoy the post
This week, we did our first scheduled saddle stitch class to make a beautiful card case, ideal for credit cards, travel cards and business cards. They are made from beautiful Tempesti veg tanned leather split to 1.2mm. Buttery and soft, this leather will age beautifully, developing a natural patina from being handled.
They make fantastic presents either for a loved one or for yourself.
We also have gift cards which can be redeemed for any of our courses if you know someone who would love to make one.
The class started at 6.30pm at our school in Shoreditch and was led by expert leather worker Frankey Pinnock of Foster and Son, London
She took the students through edge treatments, heat creasing, and gluing the pieces together prior to stitching.
And then came the saddle stitching.

If you fancy making one yourself, you can book and evening class here or a Saturday class here
And don't forget a Carreducker Gift Card for those hard to buy for people
And that's it for this week. Until next time, happy shoemaking!
