    I'm looking for someone who can help me restore an old braided leather quirt/riding whip. Anyone know someone who'd be capable?

    Times not an issue. I'll try to get some photos, but it's too dark here now.

    Ya bet Kevin. I know several really good braiders. Pics might help me get going in the right direction.
