Will anyone be at DMS this weekend to give me an intro to the basic tools?


#1

Hi there. This is Whitney (using my husband’s login for now) and we’ve been members for a while, but haven’t ever used the leather area. I’m making a simple leather bracelet as a Christmas gift. I have the leather and have already cut it to size on my mat at home, but before I invest in my own punches, I’d love to see what my membership gives me access to at the DMS. However, I know I probably need an intro class (above and beyond the YouTube videos I’ve watched LOL) before I use the tools. I don’t see one on the calendar and was hoping that if a typical leather user is there when I show up at DMS this weekend, can I get a quick lesson on JUST the circle punch tool and stitching punch tools I want to use?? I plan to hand stitch and already bought needles, threads and Chicago screws. If this would be OK (leather area rule-wise), is anyone willing to say they plan to be at DMS and are willing to give me a quick lesson?
THANKS!

So sorry about the late reply. @brentlemons did you find someone to assist you? I’ll be at DMS tuesday evening if you still need help with something.

I found someone there on Sunday who was super nice and helped me find and know how to use the few tools i needed. :slight_smile:
I completed that project, but may be hooked so I’ll keep my eye out for an intro class to get the full run down and learn a few techniques.
