I am just wondering how you all fix quills to your hats? I tend to sew them on but they always seem a little wobbly! Any advice appreciated :)
I am with you. I have always stitched everything, vowing NO GLUE in my hats. However, I am starting to see that a drop of glue here and there is not a sin, when stitching alone will not do the trick.
Thanks for your replies. What type/brand of glue would you recommend using? Thanks - Jessica.
I try to make holes in the quill to stitch through, but beware once used a very small crochet hook to do it instead of the awl and managed to embed it in my finger. Was very nearly a trip to hospital, but without fainting did manage to get it out. lesson learnt and will only use awl from now on .
I have attached them by heating the needle and using this to push through the quill, a few stitches to fasten in a couple of places and a dab of glue. I was taught to use UHU glue on a millinery course as it doesn't discolour/turn yellow over time and its super cheap and easy to use!
