Searched forever to find someone who could sew leather in Chicago so I could make my mom an overnight bag from a hide I got from work. Sara, the woman behind Chicago School of Shoemaking, not only knows how to sew leather but you can take a class and learn how to be a true designer and make clutches, shoes, earings, etc etc! SO MUCH FUN!!! I didn’t know what to expect but I loved it. 5 hours on a Saturday with her and we had a beautiful finished bag.
We’re rounding the corner towards Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, my birthday :)) and a number of special events. So here’s just the class to make those special gifts. You have ample time in a 4 hour class to design, construct and decorate a belt, wallet, pouch, kindle cover, clutch, a few cuffs or a string bag. Look at what some students recently created and get inspired. This is a one time event–so join us on Saturday May 5th for the ride!
