Important News from J.H. Leather

Wishing you a
Happy New Year!
 
Firstly, may I wish you and your family a happy and healthy 2021.
 
Whilst writing I would like to share with you some important news about J.H. Leather.
As many of you will be aware, I have a YouTube channel where I make tutorial videos and pattern packs that support them.  I also offer one-to one and group training days at my workshop along with some DIY craft kits.
I really enjoy making the videos and sharing my passion for leatherwork with new people and thanks to your support my YouTube channel has grown significantly to almost 45k subscribers.
Therefore over the next few months I will be closing down the sales part of JH Leather.  I will still be making items on commission and doing limited edition runs of products, but items won't be available to order in the same way they are now. 

There are many reasons for this decision with the main one being that my current level of production is causing me some health issues particularly in my hands. Long days of hand stitching for the last 10 years is starting to take its toll and I am concerned if I continue this will get progressively worse.
This won't be happening immediately and I will be putting out more information before it does but as one of the people that has supported me I wanted to give as much notice as possible.
If you have any thoughts or questions, I would love to hear from you.
 
I hope you have a great New Year!

Measuring Guide

Ordering a bespoke dog collar or belt? Please read the measuring guide to ensure you order the correct size.

Dog Collars

When measuring for your new dog collar, the best option is to measure the internal length of a current collar adjusted to how you like it fitted. To do this, remove the collar from your dog and do it up at the desired fitting, then with a flexible tape measure measure around the inside of the collar. This length will be where the middle hole will fit on your new collar.

How to measure your dog collar
You can also measure around your dogs neck. Place the tape measure around your dogs neck where the collar will sit and to a tightness that you like.

We will use the measurements provided as the internal measurement and add 2 larger and 2 smaller holes for adjustment. 

Belts

The best way is to measure your current belt from the inside of the buckle to the hole that is used most. You can also use a tape measure and measure around your waist where your belt will sit.

We will add 3 larger and 3 smaller holes for adjustment.
