Akron Ale Fest Featured Maker: Yurko Stitch Co

Who are you and what is your role at your business?

My name is Brad and I'm the maker of all products at Yurko Stitch Co. including leather wallets made from real baseball gloves and industrial pipe lamps & decor.

Where did the idea for your logo come from?

Yurko was my name in college and I've grown up loving and playing baseball. The color red and stitch came from the red stitching in a baseball.

What is your favorite seasonal beer?

Honestly I don't really like beer but what I would drink is an Angry Orchard lol.

What is your favorite tool you use to create your goods?

Simple my razor blade. Taking apart baseball gloves is very therapeutic for me.

What is your most recent milestone?

I purchased a "Clicker" so I can cut out my leather pieces easier and faster instead of doing everything by hand.

What is your next major goal for your business?

 I would love to get my Baseball glove leather goods into as many minor league baseball stadiums as possible.

Lion, wolf, or dragon who will win and why?

Lion for the only reason is that I like them the best.
