Just wondering if there is demand for fixing saddlery or making customised leather work?

Considering going on a course! I'm based near Oldmeldrum but could cover a wide area.

I know you can get repairs one though Aberdeenshire saddlery at Hayfield but don't know of anyone else.

Glad to hear people's views...

There is a lady around where I used to live (Inverurie) cannot remember her name at all (so not that helpful sorry!) but she put elastic on my long boots for £30 I think and she is very good, really quick too. But apart from that I don't know anyone else!

Hiya

There's a lady that has a shop right on the side of the road near Udny. Sorry I can't remember the name. I have a note of it at home (i'm in work just now).

There's also a lady at Straloch. I believe her husband is called John Stiles. I didn't know she existed (not sure if she advertises) but I find out when I went to get hay from them.

Sorry for the vague info

Ok, so more people than I knew about. But sounds like none are particularly well known.

Would any of you regularly get anything repaired if it was local or picked up/ dropped off at yards or local tack shops?

Just trying to gauge interest!!

Cheers

Joannes leather work is fabulous! She pays a lot of attention to detail.

I love horses but big dogs are my first love. I've had a thick leather collar that 2 of my dogs have worn but in need of repair as no 3 had a little chew as puppy. As leather so thick I was advised to try a saddlery repair place. I haven't took it to Hayfield yet but nowhere else I can go and praying my 4th dog can wear it when old enough.
