Hey Kickstarters!! Thank you all so much for your incredible support. $75,000 in two weeks is simply amazing. Please take the time to share this page on Facebook and Twitter with your friends and family. I truly believe that this is the Best Wallet in the World, and I want to get it into the hands of as many people as possible. Friends don't let friends use crappy wallets!

As my way of saying "thank you" I've added three new tiers:

Green Thread & Leather, available as a Kit for $29 and as a Wrap for $59
Green Thread & Leather, available as a Kit for $29 and as a Wrap for $59
Limited Edition Kickstarter Green Kit - $49
Limited Edition Kickstarter Green Kit - $49

I also have a question for those of you ordering the Kickstarter Green wallets. I originally intended to make this limited edition, but I think the color is awesome and I feel like not offering it later is a bit of a waste. What do you think? You would still have the only ones with the Kickstarter logo etched onto the inside. This is your tier, you are the ones supporting me, and I'd only want to make this available later if you are okay with it. Otherwise I'll just save it for my next Thread & Leather Kickstarter project ;-)

I also had a secret plan to use the cutouts from the ID & slide pockets to make little bonus things like logo keyring tags and leather business cards but I didn't want to tell you until I was certain I could do that. I'm researching grommets to strengthen holes in the leather, and I think a T&L keychain tag for the little piece and maybe a luggage tag for the ID window piece. What would you like to receive?

I also hear all of you that want to choose between an ID window & slide pocket, two slide pockets and even a solid piece of leather with no holes. I'm trying to figure out how I can do that logistically while still delivering by the holidays. I also hear those of you that want these features and are willing to wait until after the holidays to receive a wallet exactly how you'd like it. Look for an update on that in the near future.

I was up at the tannery on Tuesday and have a few pictures for you:

I'll be at the laser cutter this week getting samples cut out of all the different colors of leather, and I'll sew up as many of those as I can. I'm still waiting on a few thread colors so you won't be able to see all of them but I'll do what I can.

Have an amazing Saturday!!
