My hubby does leather work. Unfortunately when we came to TX we had to sell his sewing machine, we didn't have room for it in the trailer. But he wanted one that could sew thicker leather anyhow. He loves building fancy headstalls, he is like a little kid, gets all giggly when picking out the silver. LOL
We have a friend that is an amazing silversmith(he got bored with saddlemaking) and hubby and I both are going to take silver engraving classes from him. The silver engraving is much more interesting to me and doesn't require as many tools :)
I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.
