Sometimes, luck can cause us to meet great people, and sometimes boldness from two strangers can be the beginning of a great adventure.
I contacted Acadian Sturgeon to ask for leather scraps as they sell beautiful Sturgeon leather as Art (see right).
After a few exchanges the best solution for us was to barter, "use my leather, and make a wallet, the rest is yours". I received 2 hides the next day! It was time to discover this new leather and all its many secrets.
