If you at all can get to Lineapelle Milan, go! It is a massive show dedicated to all things Leatherwork. You will walk nearly 20 miles each day to get to all of the exhibits. If you can’t get to Milan, then consider going to Lineapelle New York. While it is only 10% of the size of the Milan show, there are some fine exhibitors there and you will be sure to find a new supplier.  Like the Milan show, Lineapelle New York is twice a year, typically in January and July.  Below is a list of some of the highlights from my visit this summer:
