    We had a rather large spike in traffic to our website a few days ago, thanks to a mention of the VFG's Harris Tweed Label Resource page on MoneyTalksNews:
    https://www.moneytalksnews.com/if-you-find-this-thrift-shopping-buy-it/


    The VFG also showed up in a TikTok post recently—It's great to see/hear how the VFG benefits others! I have Google alerts set for the VFG and various aspects of the website, but things do escape my notice.


    Both members and guests, here's where you come in: Please alert us via comments on this post if you see the VFG mentioned!

    They unfortunately do not mention the VFG, but the National Library of New Zealand has clearly taken their info from our Label Resource entry for Fisba Stoffels: https://natlib.govt.nz/records/37284055
    (I am going to rewrite that entry btw... still working on the promised blog post Maggie @denisebrain and found a lot of new/better information and am trying to get that into some shape... Stoffels goes way back to the 19th century, but their cooperation in Fisba-Stoffels is newer).

    I found this one especially interesting. The actual maison Madeleine De Rauch quoted us on information about them :)

    According to the Vintage Fashion Guild, she was known for "fluid, feminine clothes and sporty day looks."
