Who's got a good leather furniture repair referral?

In trying to clean a spill, I used a leather cleaner that removed some dye from one of my leather chairs.

I'm guessing this is an easy fix for someone in the know.

Anybody got a referral or suggestions for a DIY fix?

Doesnt the bottle say to try it first on an inconspicuous area?

Thanks John!

The bottle did say that. My test was a small amount of cleaner on a damp rag & it looked fine. Didn't notice it pulling dye until I used a larger amount

Swing & a miss! Neither one does leather work.

I've been calling stores trying to get someone that does this & it's like pulling teeth.

Smithe's referred me to Creative Color. Anybody have experience with these guys?
