-Richard Bis exploring ​the possibility of teaching a leather-working class.+I would like to schedule the class for Saturday February 8th from 10a until everyone finishes (awaiting MS board approval)I will need money for class paid by February 1st so I can get all the materials and obtain any tools that the participants order. If you are interested, you can call or text me at 231-735-3528 and we can start the registration process. I can take credit cards in person, checks dropped off, or cash in person
  
-The basic materials for the class would be $30. That would cover an 18 x 24 inch piece of leather (fits into laser cutter) and the buckles ​and snaps to make a basic satchel/​purse. ​+The basic materials for the class would be $30. That would cover an 18 x 24 inch piece of leather (fits into laser cutter), rivets, d-ring'​s ​and the buckles to make a basic satchel/​purse. ​
  
-Example ​of what you can makeA satchel:+I believe I have enough tools to go around for a class of 10-15 people (who can use my tools). I can teach up to 25-30 but some participants will need to get tools also. Below is a list of tools. The tools with *'s next to them are essential and will be used a lot. If you would like your own tools please let me know when you are registering
  
-{{:classes:​satchel.jpg?​direct&​400|}}+Tools we will use: 
 +*Small Hole punch set $14 - Includes 6 sized punch heads and can be used with drill press (important)
  
-==== Notes ====+*Tubular rivet tool $14 
 + 
 +*Sewing awl (stitching leather)$10 (really useful for this project) 
 + 
 +1" heavy duty punch $60(not critical) 
 + 
 +Items I could uses a source for: 
 +3" nylon webbing. I can order it from Michigan, but if there is a retail source locally, that would help. 
 +If someone could look at this and figure out an easy way to make them:

 + 
 +If you would like to laser engrave something into your satchel, please let me know ahead of time and we can get that scheduled. I would like to avoid doing the engraving the day of class if possible. It takes a while.

-  * Lexie recommends you get "​veggie tanned"​ leather from Tandy Leather at [[http://​www.tandyleatherfactory.com/​default.asp?​sectionpath=1%2F226&​processor=asp&​asp_processor=directory&​action=searchall&​p_countryid=USA&​p_stateid=WI&​p_city=Hales+Corners|5606 South 108th Street in Hales Corners]]. (Veggie Tanning is not toxic, the other types can throw off toxic fumes. So while laser cutting leather may smell bad, the Veggie Tan type won't kill you.)
