Molly Grant
Molly began leatherworking in her early 20s by working on her own, and later by apprenticing at the Black Swan Leather shop in Portsmouth, NH. She first saw shoes of the Cordwainer Shop as a youngster at the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen's Fair. She became a juried member of the League in 1989, participating in the fair with a line of her handbags. There, she had the opportunity to meet Paul Mathews, owner of the Cordwainer Shop. Within a few months' time, Molly was traveling to craft shows nationally with Paul and learning the Cordwainer craft. She still makes handbags, but her main business is footwear, along with teaching shoemaking workshops at the shop and at craft schools across the country.
