Fw: [EKMetalsmiths] Documentation on Metal Needles / Clothing Forms
- Anybody here have more information on either topic? Or, you can post her to
get what she knows. When, for leathersmithing, did the transition start
occuring from awls and boar bristle needles, to awls and metal needles?
Seems to me, too, that a clothing form is a sensible extention of boot and
shoe lasts, for those leatherworkers that would make leather clothing or
armor- do we have any evidence in our craft? If so, when?

Subject: [EKMetalsmiths] Documentation on Metal Needles / Clothing Forms
Please feel free to forward where applicable.
At some point in time, a while (years) ago, someone asked about
documentation for metal needles in period. I can't remember who, but I
I now have 2 bits of information on that topic, which I'm planning to put
up on our shire's website soon in our "fun documentation we've stumbled
over and we know someone's looking for it" section.
I also found documentation for a clothing form / dummy in period, where
two people are sewing a tunic from opposite sides.
If any of these things sound interesting / familiar, please let me know,
and I'll make sure to send you the URL when they go up!
