hobbies

Hi,  I used to have a hobby carving pictures onto leather, it needed a lot of patience and time, but it was my equivalent of doing jig saw puzzles or crosswords, well, that was many years ago and now that i am retired, i thought i would give it another go, i seem to have a lot of time on my hands.  
If anyone out there has any old cobblers,or sadlers, or bookbinding, or leather crafting tools they don't want or would like to swap for something, or are not asking too much  cash wise, please get in touch, there is a lot more to leather tooling than meets the eye, so any tools for the purpose would be appreciated.

I, also, enjoyed leather tooling, went on to leather belt making and sold at craft markets until cutting leather became a muscle too far.

Now I teach crochet, a much gentler craft but easier on the energy.

I have some tools ,looking for a good home, including cutting, stamping and would be very pleased to hand them on.

Hi Barbara, where do you teach crochet? I have a very basic knowledge but would love to learn properly, can you help?

I'd love robe able to crochet, many have tried and failed, I think it's because I'm left handed.
