Sharon, will you be my daughter?  ;-)

The only one I had located was
http://www.greenberghammer.com/store.asp?ItemID=1246

20" wide $18.50/yard.  YIKES!

I will check the local source today, and order from Atlanta
Thread if I don't find it here.  Funny, I had searched their
site, but hadn't dug deep enough, all I found was interfacings,
none of which were hair canvas.

Thanks again,

Beverly

lol  You betcha.  ;)  Even though you found another source already, glad to
help.  I love Atlanta Thread. They have the most amazing stuff.  But I have
found that the best way to find things on the website is to use the search
box.  I think it's because they have So Much stuff that paging through just
takes too long.  See if you can get on their mailing list. The catalog is
free (or was when I got on the mailing list.)  They send out usually 4 per
year, or once a season.  Spring, summer, fall and winter.  The print
catalogs are wonderful.  I've also always had tremendous dealings with them
on the phone.  Since I usually order from the print catalog, I just call
them.  Really a great source for all kinds of things.  Since they cater to
so many professional tailors, etc. you can find stuff there that TSWLTH
(all of them) have never heard of. ;)

Re: Sad Commentary
At one time, I received Atlanta Thread catalogs, but after moving to CA,
then back to TX, I stopped getting them.  Sharon, you just reminded me to
call and ask them to start a new subscription.  Thank you,
Emily

And I appreciate it.  I prefer, when possible, to buy locally and
this time I was able to find what I needed, but I have an
extensive list bookmarked for the eventuality that I won't find
stuff here.

Funnily enough, I did use the search box.  "Hair Canvas" did not
return any hits a few days ago.  :-|

Thanks again,

Re-enacting/living history groups have to make their own clothing.  Things
like corsets require (horse)hair canvas or whatever it's called.
Check out things associated with SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism).
I don't know what you'd have to look up for Revolutionary War/Civil War
re-enactors supplies.
SCA has a newsgroup rec.org.sca.  You might want to go there and ask for
websites.
Also try, well maybe before you bother some people on the ng you might try
here:  www.florilegium.org

Just hoping to help...............now why did it do that?

Cool!  74" wide and only $12.00/yard.  Definitely worth taking a
look if I can't buy locally.  Saved to my Sewing|Notions
bookmarks.  Thanks!

They don't provide much in the way of details (color, width,
weight), but I'll call them.

Re: Sad Commentary
They sell hair canvas under the trade name of Hymo at Greenberg and Hammer
in NY.  They have it available at their online site.

We used to order tailoring supplies from them when I was in costuming in
college.

That appears to be available in black only, I need neutral for

Re: Sad Commentary
Follow-up:  The local-to-me large fabric store (Mill End Store)
http://millendstore.com/history.html
had 64" *real* goat-hair canvas for $19.99/yard.  Since they
honor competitor's coupons up to 30% off, and I had my TSWLTH
coupon, I bought a yard for $13.99 net.  Pretty good deal, the
equivalent of $4.37/yard for 20" canvas and I don't have to pay
shipping.

NAYY, but my mother shopped there in the 30s and 40s, and I've
been shopping there since the early 50s.

What's more, I decided to look for some 100% cotton for the kilt
lining, and managed to misplace my credit card.  I just got home
(dinner and a movie with my brother and SIL), and I had a phone
message from the Mill End Store, a customer found my card and
turned it in!  People who sew are soooooo nice.  :-)

We have a Mill End Fabrics in Reno, no association with yours that I can
see, but a wonderful resource and the first on my list for fabrics and
most notions.

We also have a Hancock's, a JoAnn's, a $2/yard Fabric, and at least two
Little Quilt Shops.  All in all, not bad for a city the size of Reno.
Of course, some are in Sparks, but there's no gap between Reno and
Sparks anymore.

Oh, nice one!  :)  DH managed to leave his card in Whittards tea &
coffee emporium last Saturday, but the lass behind the counter had put
it in the till for him and had it waiting when he rang and then went
back for it.

Sad, but unfortunately all too common these days.

Best/worst example I can recall happened during while I was on
vacation, and had decided to visit the local branch of a store that I
shopped in regularly back home.

I'd just stepped in and was still near the front of the store when I
overheard one of the staff answer a customer with  "we don't have
that".  I called out and told them exactly where it was.  They were
both a bit shocked to find it, just where I said it was located.

And a friend of my told me about being in a fast food place
(masquerading as a restaurant), where the "associate" didn't know what
a "utensil" was, and said they had never heard of it before.
