    Flat Fan help
    by Beardancer
    OK folks, as if I'm not busy enough trying to finish my vest, tighten up a pair of mocs and bead a bulltail for my roach, I've got the itch to try making a few flat fans. Now, the beading doesn't concern me-that's the easy part. What I'm trying to figure out is the handle. Now I've heard of everything...

    Fan question
    by aNishKwe
    Okay, so I located a fan handle, not detacheable but whole, which is still fine :)

    However, I am wondering what do you use to attach the feathers to the fan. Is there a specific name for that material/piece that I can seek out, perhaps at a art store?
    I'd like to attempt threadwork...
