Hello and thank you for your Introductory Leather Carving workshop in Indianapolis last month. My wife and I attended along with another family from my wife's 4H club (we sat right behind you - I'm the Santa looking guy...). We all had a good time learning some of the basics. After the class we stopped by the Tandy Leather store (only a few blocks away) and picked up some kits as the 4H club hosted a general workshop three weeks ago. Eugene and Nancy Cooper and six others from the Central Indiana Leathercrafters drove over to help 4Hers and some parents start various projects.
My wife started the flask kit but as she also helped out with setup and lunch etc, she has more to do. I spent most of my time planing/laying out/cutting leather from a hide I had then started punching the holes for a shoulder messenger bag. I like stitching better than carving.
Thanks again for your instruction. Your heart of service and patience was very evident with the children (and adults) in the carving class.
Enjoying God's goodness everyday! -Rod Cushingham
