Leather repair is carried out by Black Cat Saddlery in Dadeville, AL and Black Sheep Saddlery in Scottsville, VA.
Both of these ladies have years of experience and know how to treat a leather good. Consults are suggested before shipping.
While they are both exceptional craftswomen, they are not wizards. They cannot defy the laws of physics, reverse time or create something sound out of something that was initially ill constructed.
But what they CAN do is pretty darn closet to wizardry.
