May is here

We have been evaluating our performance and re-focusing on our core strengths. Right.  Two computer classes are starting this week: Monday evening at 7:00-9:00 and Thursday afternoon at 2:00-4:00. Four seats are open Monday, two seats are open Thursday. If you want to join, be there.

If you struggled through reading that, here are some pictures to enjoy.

Started more belts for our fund raiser

DSCN2414Started belts for Ed & Bob. This leather is very soft, almost suede. They are getting nice material. Got it cut from the hide and just finished beveling the edges here before smoothing the edges and punching the holes. Then I will stamp their names in a place only they will see: a belt individually crafted specifically for them and no one else.

These will both be black, one with embossing and one without. They will have the stock “economy” buckles but their new owners can upgrade any time they wish by simply un-snapping the current buckle and sliding on the new one.

If you would like to help support our job skills training by purchasing a belt, make a donation for $32 (and if you need to belt mailed to you + $5.80 postage) using our PayPal Donate Now button. On the PayPal payment screen write the belt width (1″, 1.25″, 1.5″), your waist size as measured with a tape (ex: 47″), the color (black, red, blue, green, tan, only clear coat, uncoated leather), whether you do or do not want embossed scrolling down the sides, and any text you want stamped onto the belt. You can also send this information to us in email at jdnash@alt-fw.org after making your payment using the PayPal button (we love you all but we can’t make you a belt until it is paid for).
