Hunting season on the way

The autum hunting season is nearly here, and Im making up bags just in time for it...consignments actually...but its neat to be making a traditional bag that is soon going out in the field just in like the old days. Its pretty nice stitching up a bag with that in mind. This one is another Pennsylvania folk art bag and it seems to still be a popular style. Even though I have made several of these and have the pattern down pretty well, theres always room for an improvement here and a refinement there...this time a request for an inner pocket and a sleeve to hold a short starter were requested.

CLA show

Well....I have been totally consumed getting ready for the CLA show...it has really snuck up on me even though
Ive been getting ready for it for months..I hope to get half of what Im planning done ready in time...but I have my
doubts. Loooks like the show is a sell out, and should be a really good one, even though its coming way too fast,
I guess I cant wait for it....

original pouch size study

Theres alot of debate about how big the average shooting pouch really was. They were all pretty much individual items and made to suit the owner thats true, but Mr. Dean Freund has recently spent alot of time gathering up all of the original source data pertaining to pouch dimensions (shape and size) and is coming up with some pretty terrific statistical data...so far it seems to prove that bags were smaller than we tend to make them now.

Thanks Dean

Under the "Questions" section, ( under "Image Galleries") I have placed something titled "Deans Story"
Its a question cause I wonder why donesnt every one think about doing something like this
should the need arise, and of course, why do such bad things happen ....
its great what you have done here Dean...to think a simple hunting pouch can
still play such a big role in our lives even in todays day and age....
Thanks for sharing this Dean...both the story and the example you have set..

Deans story...."why do bad things happen?"

Deans story...."why do bad things happen?"

It was December twenty first. Just four days before Christmas. The call came at about 2:55 A.M. The woman on the other end was sobbing — “Dean, it’s gone it’s all gone! My house is on fire — it’s all gone”! “Lisa where’s Bob”? “He’s right here next to me”. “Dean, We’ll need a place to stay”.
