Just a few notes about me and the way I operate...

My Philosophy

My recovery is sacred to me,
and I feel my efforts in my work reflect my program.
I am sincere and honest,
and do the very best I can.
I know just how life saving
ALL my 12 step books were
and still are to me,
and how special my
1st leather book cover was.
I carried it proudly
for over 10 years,
before I even thought about making them myself.
I want every customer to have such pride in the books
they carry, read and study.
I pray over each and every recovery book cover,
while I am sewing it,
that it will cover a book,
that will be read, and in fact,
change the life of the person reading it.

Mmmm, not yet...

I am the sole owner and operator of my simple, however sincere business. I am the only one who does 100% of the work, and all of it is done by hand. I may get to the point where I need to some assistance to keep up with orders, but for now, my customers are content to wait patiently to recieve my work.

My Company

I started making leather book covers after praying about what I could make and sell on Ebay, that would not cost a fortune to ship.
I always carried an NA text to meetings with a leather book cover that I had purchased at an NA convention years ago. God's message came in very clear one night, in a meeting, "You could make these!"
My husband of 30 years, had done leatherwork in his early 20's, so I asked him if he could teach me how to make a leather book cover. He was sure he could.
We purchased basic supplies and excitedly I practiced for weeks! Being an addict, my disease told me I would fail, so it was 6 months before I actually made my 1st finished cover!
I sold three covers the 1st week. It is now a year later, and I have sold well over a hundred. I have been basically self taught, through experience, after the initial lesson, I read books and went at it! I buy supplies and ask questions, but have never taken the formal lessons. When something worked for me, I continued to do it.
Many people wonder why I still hand tool all my desings and do not use presses to save time, and why I sew everything by hand without even an awl. It is because it's the way I do it-the way I put 100% of myself and my energy and love into my work. Machines would take away from that, and I do not look forward to the day I have so much business, I have to go there! I have confidence in my work, my product and ability to tool the leather. I take great pride in my work, my finished product and my repeat customers convince me that the work I am doing is awesome.
