Format: Hardcover
In writing this book, the author took advantage of the fact that there aren't many leather sewing how-to books available.
But despite the lack of good books on this subject, this book is just ok, not great. It's not a must-have book. I am a pretty big fan of Lark Books' craft books (the publisher of this book) but this Leather book is pretty slim. Some of the author's garment examples are bizarre and one-of-a-kind, which I didn't find inspiring.
If you already have any experience at all sewing leather, you don't need this book. However, if you have never sewn leather and want a few basic pointers, basic pointers are within the scope of this book.

I love books that inspire me and make me want to create! Lark Books and Sandy Scrivano did just that! Beautiful photography, detailed and practical information, an informational glossary and a generous resource list (it's one thing to create, it's another to find the stuff!). You definitely won't think 60's when reading this book... this is LEATHER WITH ATTITUDE!

I ordered this book after my DBIL brought me back some lambskins from Ecuador. Having never worked with leather I had no clue where to start. Sandy's last article in Threads was so inspiring but I was disappointed in the book. The book will be helpful to me as far as the basics go, but samples shown in Threads magazine and online were much better - at least for my taste.

The author gives the reader a very thorough view on working with leather. Her list of items needed to get started was dead on! What I liked best was she didn't mind repeating herself a couple of time so the reader could get the hang of what she was talking about. What I didn't like was that she only talked about sewing clothes, so since I've been working with leather, I had to creat new tricks of my own. I must admit, I never would have come up with them without the author's extremely helpful insight.

I have loved the idea of sewing leather because I prefer natural materials versus synthetic and like the luxurious feel and texture of real leather, but was always afraid that my sewing machine could not handle this material. This book answers all my questions and quells all the fears. I have since purchased some leather pieces and am experimenting with leather trims and accessories just to get my feet wet. This is the perfect book to get you started sewing leather.
