The Leather Quilt Project. Any & all Leather Clubs, Bars, Groups, Individuals, Leather Families, Events, and Leather Stores are all invited to obtain a blank quilt panel from Leather Masters. For the first 100 panels sold, Leather Masters will donate 30% of the $15.00 back to the Quilt Project to help with shipping and 70% will be donated to NCSF (The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom - www.ncsfreedom.org). After the first 100 panels, Leather Masters will donate the same spilt percentage to the Quilt Project & NCSF after costs of making the panel. How to Make a Quilt Panel: 1. Obtain a designated panel from Leather Masters Dallas- www.LeatherMasters.com (only authorized squares will be allowed as this is a joint fund raiser) 2. Place your club colors, pins, and any other “reasonable” memorabilia on the panel. Patches must be sewn on (not just glued) and pins etc must have a drop of superglue put on the back side to hold the clips on. 3. Mail the completed panel to Butchmanns at PO Box 17719 Tucson, AZ 85731 4. You may donate any of the above items to Butchmanns Inc, and they will gladly add them to a composite panel, made up of several groups. They will also have panels made up entirely of pins from assorted groups. 5. Each square should have a 1 page typed sheet of the history of the panel, listing who made it, a brief history of the club or event, etc., and the history of the patches or pins included on the panel. The Leather Quilt: ~ A history of leather Pride, in the now... On November 3, 2005 a madcap idea of making a “Leather Tribal Quilt” somehow managed to get conceived and sort of bubbled out of an otherwise unremarkable mind. In its first conception it was to be used as a fund raiser for South Plains Leatherfest’s International Master and slave travel fund and somehow get donated to the Leather archives and museum (you know, located in Chicago but serving the world). Wiser folk identified that ‘fund raiser’ and ‘donating’ and ‘travel fund’ might get all mixed up and they complained that it was too complicated an idea. One besieged soul suggested it was somehow a secret plot to generate funds for personal use – laughing – YIKES. Well, to put all doubts to bed, the idea matured a bit and blossomed into its current status; The Leather Tribe Quilt. It is now its own beast – a moveable part of leather pride. Master Z, from Texas, was the first official donor to the Leather Quilt Project.
