At Advanced Leather Solutions our motto is "No Secrets." As an "Open Source" company we are happy to share our knowledge. To that end, check out the Global Leather Repair Technicians discussion group on Linkedin. It is the brain-child of Lee Bryan, Technical Sales Advisor for Stahl Europe B.V. Lee works out of Barcelona, Spain where he ran his own leather repair and restoration business for years before he joined Stahl. Here is the link for the group:
Whether deeply experienced or just a rookie, I recommend that you join. It only takes a minute to sign up, yet it brings truly a world of knowledge. Read through the discussions and jump in with your own tricks-of-the-trade, know-how and experience. Begin a new discussion with a topic of your own. Let the entire global leather technician community learn from you, as you learn from them. If you're new to the business or a seasoned tech, use this forum as a means of asking questions and seeking advice, learning from the invaluable experience of other pros. With broad participation, we can all thrive.
