Happy National Leathercraft Day 2023!

Happy National Leathercraft Day 2023!

Started by Tandy Leather in 2018, on August 15th we celebrate National Leathercraft Day, a beautiful tribute to the legacy and heritage of leatherworking culturally, socially, and historically. We highlight and recognize the skills of thousands of leathercrafters throughout the nation no matter how long they have been working at their craft on this fun holiday. 

As was the case for all 104 years of Tandy’s history, we called special attention to individuals engaging in this art form that spans thousands of years. We celebrated throughout our stores and in our communities, sharing the mutual love and respect for our craft. 

Scroll down to see the people and projects that were completed throughout the week of August 15th, 2023, all across the country! Drop us a comment if you celebrated too, and let us know what you made! 

Taken at store 105 in Berlin, CT, manager Tim submitted this photo of customers who attended a Meet and Greet after having a marble shaving cream dying class- and stayed the whole day!

Submitted by our Calgary, AB store, Candice and the 703 staff showed off their excitement by highlighting sale leathers and adding a festive Barbie themed display!  

Store 146 in Jacksonville, FL had an amazing weekend with beautiful work to show for it!

Store 131 in Nashville, TN had an amazing turn out with a class hosted by the South-Central Leather Crafters Guild. Does anyone spy a special guest in the mix?

What a stunning result from the 202 at Fort Liberty class, putting their skills to work crafting these upholstered stools, even adding some seasonal customization!
