Have you gone to the library lately?

“Leathercraft Library has a little something for everyone,” says Charlie Davenport Research & Development Manager. “Whether you are looking for clothing patterns, accessories, home decor, handbag patterns, or just love leathercraft, you’ll find this to be a great place for inspiration, project ideas, patterns, and tutorials to make you a better leather crafter. This is just the beginning of the exciting things in store for the leathercraft community. We hope leathercrafters will have fun, and stay tuned … there’s a lot more coming their way.”

To say I am truly impressed and delighted is an understatement. Not only is the site efficient and easy to navigate, the contents are wonderful. I have forgotten just how many really great products have been available and the older Doodle Pages, many of which I have never seen, made me want to sit down and tool some leather right now!” – Silva Fox, Leather Artist and Al Stohlman Award recipient.

“One of our most requested items are patterns from kits that we no longer carry. The launch of LeathercraftLibrary.com means we’ll be able to start offering patterns from our vast collection built up over the last 91 years of serving leathercrafters. Additionally, the Tandy Leather motto is “We teach the world leathercraft.”  Our premium video subscription will allow us to conveniently teach leathercrafters when they might be too far away from our stores to take classes”, said Mark Angus, Senior Vice President of Tandy Leather Factory. “That’s why I’m so excited about our new website. Leathercrafters will have the opportunity to learn new techniques from the comfort of their own workshop!”
