have found a source in Christchurch, but the are charging like a wounded ball. And they only sell whole or half hides which is way more than I need.
might setup a group buy if others are in the same boat.
but only once I have found decent prices.
Thats a great plan. Hopefully a future member will be able to provide a more economic source. I have tried looking for places online but they are over the top, mostly targeted at the upholstery market it looks like.
