This is a new cowboy boot top design. It’s stitched with my new silk thread, one row at a time, on a single needle sewing machine. I’m rather proud of it!
I’m getting ready to start a pair of boot tops that will have multiple rows of my new silk thread. I called Paige in to help with color selection. She has a really good eye for color.
There are only two openings left in the leather inlay/overlay class I’ll be teaching at the Penland School of Craft, April 19-25. If you’re thinking about attending you should make your reservation soon! The last time I taught the class sold out and I had 30 people on the wait list.
Leather Inlay/Overlay Class
We have a visitor in the shop, and Paige is demonstrating lasting a shoe.
I got a shipment of Baker Leather this morning. It smells so good!
Paige is inseaming a shoe this morning and I’m already thinking about lunch. I said, “Why don’t you see if you can get half of it done before noon?” With a look of extreme hurt she said, “I’m a good inseamer! I can finish before lunch!”
This is just what I want to see. It’s sitting straight and level with the correct heel height and toe spring.
