    • Have not put a lot of study into this, but there is a book by Bobbie Aug and Gerald Roy called Antique Quilts and Textiles that is well set up. This was published by Collector Books who is not out of business, but still might have it in stock.

    • Hello folks! Does anyone have a favorite resource (online, print, other) for identifying types of fabric as well as designs on fabric? I am a little new to this field and trying to educate myself. I guess I should say that I'm referring to vintage material like table runners, dresser scafs, etc. Thanks!

    • I know Yvonne! I could not believe I found exactly what I needed. They even have real hair...lol

      I have not been in our space long enough to know what is going to be a good mover for us. We are pretty eclectic at the moment.

    • Actually this weekend I found two heads at a garage sale. They are the professional heads that hairdresser practice on and they are fabulous. I do not do a lot of hats so I'm hoping this will take care of the problem.

      I agree - painted styrofoam ones are tacky :)

    • JMVHO.. and i do mean very humble, the styro ones are nice if they aren't "painted".. i think they look tacky when people paint red lips and long eyelashes. I actually think they look cute on those spool type hat stands. I've used a candle stick before. Do you have a regular mani that you can just do a head shot of?

    • I have just a couple of hats and don't really feel like I want to buy mannequin heads.  Is there another way to display hats where they still look great?

       

      If I have to buy a head, is a styrofoam one acceptable or too takcy?

       

      Thanks!
