Short Stories About Shoes

Finding the right piece of equipment is essential to producing consistent and high quality product.

 

 

At ShoeSchool we have a complete Cottage Industry Manufacturing Facility for Leather Craft & Shoemaking. It took many years to find and develop this esoteric collection of machines.

We have assembled photos of the most important equipment that you will want to include in your shop, specialty sewing machines, cutting, skiving, and finishing equipment.

These machines are all available to purchase, either new or rebuilt with a warranty, from Pilgrim Shoe Machine, in Quincy, Mass. You can contact Pilgrim directly at 1.800.343.2202, or visit their website at PilgrimShoeMachine.com

ShoeSchool offers Advance Training Workshops that will teach you how to set up, operate, and maintain each machine. We can also help you to design & engineer your own Studio or Cottage Industry Facility for One-of-a-kind Craftsmanship, or Small Scale Production.
