Try a shop that does saddles and bridles (tack) for horses or an old 
fashioned shoe repair shop...I sucessfully had my system case for the M3 
restiched by going to the local shoe repair shop.  The stinching is not 
original...but I was more concerned with functionality.  The saddle shop 
can easily replace pieces of leahter.  It was quite cheap, as I recall.
