I would like to nominate Cathy for the HOF, for she, in my opinion is
most deserving of this prestigeous award. She is a long time member
of IILG, and has been a Director now for close to 8 years. She is now
in her third term as the Chair of the Executive Board. She expends

benefits the IILG.
Cathy also expends much time with teaching leathercraft, as well as
much time in compiling lists, such as are listed in the Leather
Knowledge Base. which also is a great benefit for the members of IILG.
For the HoF I would like to nominate Cathy Schlim. Her service to
the guild and therefore the leather community in general has been
considerable. In addition to her service as Board chairperson ( a
job I know is both time consuming and frustrating, lol) the numerous
study aids that she has produce for the guild are outstanding and
extremely valuable to those needing assistance with various projects.
She has also done an excellent and consistent job in answering
questions in many areas of leather work thereby demonstrating her
own expertise in the subject and again providing guidance for our
