Leather carver keeps busy

Posted

During the recent club shutdowns, Sun City West Leather Carvers president John Richter has been keeping busy working on his leather projects at home. He has discovered his love of braiding and sewing and would like everyone to know that working with leather is possible in many forms, not only carving and stamping.

Mr. Richter joined the club about two years ago and found carving and stamping were not for him; however, he is enjoying the variety of other types of projects available.

The club has a complete library of inspiration and ideas and members are encouraged to explore the many possibilities. 

Mr. Richter has donated many of his projects and continues to create one of a kind items such as leather placemats and clocks.

The leather workers meet 8 a.m. Monday-Friday at the Kuentz center. Classes will be scheduled when possible.
