HOLSTERS have played, and are still playing, a very important part in the history of man. And, since the making and manufacture of the first hand guns, methods for concealing, easier handling and carrying of these weapons have been devised. Trial and error being the surest way of improvement, holster making has now advanced to fill almost every need and requirement of the pistol user. Today, with the hundreds of Makes, Models, and barrel lengths of hand guns, it would be virtually impossible to reproduce holster patterns for each and every one into book form. The Holster Patterns presented in this book are a cross-section of a few of the most popular Makes and Models of the guns in use today; with alternate designs and added barrel lengths as space permits. Most of the Carving Designs presented can be altered for shorter, longer, or odd barrel lengths by adding or omitting a leaf, scroll, etc. The designs can also be used on similar holster patterns for other guns by “stretching” or “squeezing” the flowers, leaves, etc., to fit the confines of the border lines. With a little Imagination and Ingenuity, the Carving Designs in this book can be used on hundreds of holster patterns. Remember… the patterns shown will also fit many other similar makes and models of guns … too numerous to mention. The purpose of this book is to assist and instruct the craftsman in various methods of Holster Construction and Holster Pattern Making. Each phase is shown with clearly defined step-by-step photos and drawings. It is hoped that this book will aid the Self Taught Student, Instructor, and Professional Craftsman alike to further their knowledge of “How To Make Holsters” for Profit, Personal Satisfaction and Fun! A “special” thanks to my wife, Terry, who has devoted countless hours and painstaking effort to produce all of the photographs appearing in this book. Many thanks to Ralph Tiner . . . Sporting Goods Center, Hemet, Calif. … for his willing cooperation in supplying guns and information. Thanks to Lee Kelly, U. S. Forestry Service, and many other friends who have given unselfishly of their time and assistance. To the Leathercraftsman: Thanks for your patience in awaiting the first publication of “How To Make Holsters” .. . Many Happy Hours! Sincerely, Al Stohlman

Still the definitive guide, Secrets of Eskimo Skin Sewing is packed with clear, easy-to-understand instructions, drawings, and photographs to lead readers of any skill level through the process of turning natural or man-made furs and hides into handsome, useful garments. Author Edna Wilder, one of the world's best-known practitioners and modernizers of traditional Eskimo skin sewing techniques, takes would-be skin sewers through the step-by-step work involved in constructing traditional items of clothing such as mukluks, parkas, and mittens. She also includes sewing instructions for belts, baby booties, a trapper-style fur cap, and toys. Though natural fur and hides were the only ones known in traditional Eskimo lifeways, the book's guidance is completely adaptable to modern, synthetic leathers and artificial furs. Similarly, the guidance offered in these pages on traditional Native beadwork and basket making works just as well for plastic beads and basketry materials unknown to the Alaska wilderness.

As makers, we tend to learn different stitches over time without thinking much about how they relate to one another. But when Natalie Chanin and her Alabama Chanin and The School of Making teams began to look at needlework closely, they realized all stitches are based on geometric grid systems—and by using grids as guides, they could make learning stitches, even seemingly elaborate ones, as easy as child’s play. In The Geometry of Hand-Sewing Chanin presents their breakthrough method, featuring illustrated instructions (for both right- and left-handed stitchers) for more than 100 stitches—from the most basic straight and chain to the more fanciful feather and herringbone; photos of both right and wrong sides; and guidelines for modifying stitches to increase one’s repertoire further. To simplify learning, the book also offers downloads for two stitching cards with the grids on which every stitch in the book is based. These printable cards can be used as stencils for transferring grids to fabric.
