Re: [SCA-Milliners] Information if you please
- I'm a little curious how you get a sewn hat from the first image. To me
it is a felted hat sitting on a possible hat block on the table. That long
staff is not a sewing needle. It is more probably related to similar
staffs in the other hatmaker images, where they look to be an instrument to
remove the hat from the hooks they hang on above arms reach.
The second image is more questionable - granted he is sewing a hat, but
the brown piece on the floor was what caught my eye - as all the other
pieces are black.
The third image - at first I thought it might be a drum carder, but the
roller(s) at the bottom look more like they would start to compress the
carded wool into a mat.
Just my 2 cents. YMMV.

- I found this image of furriers at work - and I see fur caps up on little
blocks in the window. I don't know if they are blocks or not, but I
thought I would share:
