Footwear Symposium

Here’s another good reason to sign up for the Footwear Symposium in Oregon in June!

This handsome toolkit – worth a handsome amount, around 600 USD… We will raffle these tools amongst those who sign up for the course in the next 2 weeks (who already signed up – you are in the hat already, no worries). So, hopefully it will generate some actions – now it worth to act NOW.

    Hi Lisa. It looks like there’s no way I’ll be able to make it to Ashland in June this year. 😦 My ankle surgery just isn’t going to be well enough recovered by then. I’m starting to be able to spend an hour or so in my workshop again, at least.

    But I have a question for you — what is the Singer device in the photo??? it’s not something I’ve seen before. And I’m always on the lookout for ways to make things easier/more efficient. 🙂

    Thanks – christy brown

      I’m sorry to hear you won’t be able to attend; I was looking forward to meeting you!

      I’m really not sure what that is–I didn’t put the items together. If I had to guess I’d say that it’s a device for cutting the edge of leather in a pattern such as a scallop. Sort of like pinking shears, only on a stand with a handle. They’re fun but unfortunately will not make any job easier.
