Hi all,

I have a cowboy style leather holster I would like to get repaired/ restitched. Some of the stitching has come loose.

Doesn't have to be anything special. Just shore it up.

Any suggestions? In San Diego would be ideal, but I'm open to sending it somewhere.

Thanks.

Inquire at a shoe repair shop.

+1 for shoe repair, they work wonders on leather

i had to do some cutting into my holster's sweat guard, they were able to refinish the edge that was cut off
