In Say Hello Before Posting
My name is Tim Krenz and I live in the Philadelphia area of Pennsylvania, USA. I have been retired for twelve years, but two years ago due to medical conditions found the hobby of leatherwoork. I quickly developed a passion for it and enjoyed doing this craft on a daily basis as it was not work but play. I then set up a shop in the third bay of my garage which has both windows and is climate controlled. As a beginner, I enjoyed all the creactivity of learnng and improving. I spent countless hours in my shop pounding out poor quality products as I learned new techniques or improved my skills. I started with Tandy Products but now have learned the value of quality and you get what you spend. I would say my work now is only slighty better than average but each day improving. To date I have given all my projects away (in the hundreds) for free and people keep saying I should sell them and offer me money, (which I turn down) I do this as I totally enjoy my passion and do not want to make it a job. I have donated locally items for charity events. (coasters,billfolds,passport covers, clutch purses,coin holders, business card holders etc. The quality some really good, others good and some not so good. I want and need to improve my skills and see this as a opportunity to do it.
