Going to Sheridan, Wyoming provides us with an opportunity to immerse ourselves in the leather world in a unique way. Normally when we travel, our work is all about connecting with vendors, making deals and bringing back amazing products. Sheridan is our chance to see what you all do with those amazing products and to revel in a whole lot of western nostalgia. Last week, we traveled to Sheridan for the 24th annual Rocky Mountain Leather Trade Show. This six-day-long event includes workshops, receptions, vendors and the renowned World Leather Debut. We ran into some friends from Hermann Oak and Leather Machine Co. while we were there. Heather even helped sell some sewing machines! Of course, there was plenty of Sheridan to take in that wasn’t included in the trade show. We made sure to stop by Don King’s Western Museum, which featured amazing taxidermy and meticulously created leather projects! Friday marked the beginning of the World Leather Debut, a 17-category international leather competition that awards over $11,000 in prize money. From saddles to pictures, the entries showcased sculpture, painting, stitching, tooling and much more! Before leaving scenic Sheridan, we visited the Brinton Museum with its rammed earth wall. Our final adventure was a historic jail we happened to pass. (We though about leaving Rusty there. 😉 We are back now, but already dreaming of the rolling hills and antelope covered fields of Wyoming. We are pleased to present to you what we could bring back: some of our favorite memories from Sheridan!
