The Tariffs are Coming – but not to SLC!

Tariffs are no fun, but they’re coming and we want to help you! That’s why Darcie has taken some time to let you know about what Kevin and Rusty have in the works to save you money.

I’m not sure if Kevin’s way of thinking has slowly rubbed off on Rusty over the years or if Kevin’s brainwaves are actually stronger than we ever imagined and could have possibly penetrated Rusty’s thick skull and hijacked his brain because these two are thinking the exact same thoughts! Not only are they thinking the same thoughts, they’re way ahead of the game in keeping your best interests in mind.

 In anticipation of the current trade wars and arguments over impending tariffs and resulting effects on trade, Rusty and Kevin had the foresight to have already begun to take measures in establishing relationships with suppliers located in the United States. See? It’s like their combined thought processes merged together like a super-computer and practically predicted the future! So, on a recent trip to the east coast, Kevin and Rusty were on a mission to make things happen! 

They actually solidified several sources for hardware, as well as tools (and if I know Rusty, probably a parking ticket or two). Sealing the relationships with these manufacturers is incredibly significant. It allows us to avoid many of the hefty 25% tariffs, which will ultimately result in us being able to maintain reasonable prices for you! What’s more, Kevin and Rusty’s efforts in strengthening our working relationships with these manufacturers has also given us more of an ability to dictate what we want and how we want it.

These strong bonds have also allowed us
to offer you a chance to save on select Cobra machines before prices rise! 

That’s not all! For a limited time, you can finance your machine with no payments until 2019 when you qualify with QuickSpark!

supplies last, you can buy your Cobra machine without the 25% markup
caused by impending tariffs!

If you aren’t sure if a sewing machine is the right move for you or you don’t even know what to look for, please visit our Machinery Index! Kevin and Rusty break everything down about sewing machine from which motor is the best to how to thread the darn thing. 

Hello, I’m looking to re-wrap a couple motorcycle seats. Any recommendations on type of leather to order? or weight? I have been looking at oil tan, really like the colors… but looks kind of heavy for this application. Let me know what your top recommendation is, and also if oil tan is appropriate for this. Thanks for your time.

Hello! You’re right about oil tan being a bit too heavy usually, and also it’s just doesn’t seem to work well for that application. Your best bet is upholstery
leather, or leather that is known as “biker” leather.  2 ½ to 3 oz is usually best.  

Tours at SLC

Tours are just one of the ways we like to connect with our customers. Leather is a niche industry and every business does things differently. Our tours allow us to show customers our dedicated staff and all of the changes we are making to our work space. As the traveling season is winding down, we wanted to give those who are far away a chance to see the store. We missed a few spots, but we hope you’ll get to see those parts for yourself when you come visit!
