Hi all,

One of my favorite bags that I use as a book bag has a little leather strip coming off that needs to be sewn back in and glued. Does anyone know of a reputable leather craftsman that I can take this to, and how much he/she will usually charge? Thanks in advance!!

Try contacting Artbag at artbag.com. They have been very highly recommended and are very friendly.

Forgot to add... Ask for a pricing estimate before you make a trip there -- they are a tad on the pricey side. Would be great if you could post before/after pictures if you get the repair done; good luck!

Oh :shocked: thank you for telling me! I''ll try an online estimate; hopefully sewing and gluing 2 cm's worth of leather (at the maximum) is not going to be that expensive!
