Shoot! I just had another post disappear....
And this one I KNOW posted because I saw I had left the e off of create and decided not to go back in and edit. Weird.....

It was done in the old days, Katie. I thought maybe Buck created his fabric for the chairs the way they originally made fabric.
I have no other idea, I just hope we are in the ballpark.

You're getting warmer, pacanis. However, they have nothing to do with upholstery as I mentioned several posts earlier.

Are these tenterhooks used to hang fabrics (in particular tapestries) on the wall?

Nope. Not for hanging tapestries.

Yeah, I remember the upholstery tacks were a no go. I thought maybe these were used in the fabric making process, not the covering process.

My thinking now is that you use them, not buck......And I think someone already mentioned some kind of hanger and that wasn't it.... hmmmm

Do you use them to stretch fabric over a frame?

Not used for stretching. Everyone's stuck on "stretching."

Probably because the original use of tenterhooks was stretching wet fabric (at least stopping it shrinking.
