I got an email in the past couple of days that say fabricmart has leather skins. I looked and some a scrumptious!!! Does anyone know when they have their sale on leather skins? I remember one time last year they marked them way down.

I remember seeing those on sale the last time too, but I waited too long. Unfort. I don't remember when the sale was.

FWIW, they are 35% off now as part of FM's "H-Z" sale.

has anyone worked with their leather before? Any hints? I am thinking of making a bag, but I"m a beginner.

I bought some of their lavender leather a while back. It was as soft as lambskin; very smooth on one side and unfinished on the other. Then I bought some of their pigskin suede leather to make a backpack type handbag. That was really nice stuff.

Thanks for the info.

Actually, I just started to look into how to finish leather edges, and it seems like such a PITA it's put a damper on my aspirations.

I picked some up with this sale. I was planning to make a leather jacket but thought I'd better start slow and just make a skirt. I'm excited to see the hides!

I ordered some too. I made a couple of leather skirts last year. I am going to try a simple jacket. I am worried about setting in the sleeves. I will definitely be muslining it before hand. What color(s) did you order?
