G'day All,
Does anyone know if the Shoemaker's Competition in Germany is still going? Ref: International competition on the merits of Shoemakers' trade 2016 Host: Central Association of the German Shoemakers' Trade (ZDS)
The most recent hits I can find date from the 2016 comp and I was hoping to try entering. Web pages tend to be in German too.
Cheers

Duncan,
Lisa Sorrell has been attending the European shoe shows and competition. She may have some information for you.

And btw, I thought I'd let you know that lately I've been doing a back stitch on my Opanka Soles. :-)
With regards,
Paul
