Will all depend on the skill of the flesher at the tannery. Most fleshers should have enough experience to not cause any damage.

You could throw a couple of stitches in the hole but I donít think that is needed and might make things worse.

You should be fine.

The fleshing machine that they will use to flesh and thin the skin will most likely cut the stiches you put in the skin, actually resulting in a bigger hole. Assuming you are drying the skin on a board, just pull the hole shut with a push pin or two.
