      This is the site I found from this group's links....and I also thank
      Eleanor for the link for purchasing flat reed.....one of my friends
      suggested I use fabric stiffener and cheesecloth formed on a
      ballloon. She says it dries hard enough to support a fabric
      covering. I know this isn't "period", but I probably will only wear
      this hat once since my persona is Irish....do you think her idea
      would work?

      Thanks again,
