DIY Drop-In Events:

Our DIY Drop-In Events are a series of events we host that combine the fun of taking a class, the usefulness of learning a new skill, and the ease of just dropping by the shop. There’s no tickets required in advance, and you just show up that day, pay for what you do, and learn something new!

We’ll be hosting a DIY Drop-In Day on the first Saturday of the next three months from 12-6pm!

Leather Refurbishing + Repair Day- 2/2

How do you have and keep nice things? MAINTENANCE! Bring your leather goods- whether they came from us or are vintage or just something you love- and learn how to recondition your leather on the house! We also will be able to do simple repairs of rivets and snaps, can quote complex repair costs, and will have our house-made leather balm available to purchase. This event is free for all to attend, and we ask simply that you donate on an as-you-can basis. Repair and maintenance of our fine goods is an important part of breaking the consumer waste cycle, and we’re proud to offer a resource for members of our community to keep their nice things nice, for as long as possible!
