Mishlei (Proverbs) 31:22,24

כב מַרְבַדִּים עָשְׂתָה-לָּהּ שֵׁשׁ וְאַרְגָּמָן לְבוּשָׁהּ
כד סָדִין עָשְׂתָה וַתִּמְכֹּר
She made for herself pleasant-looking bed covers; she also made herself white (linen) and purple garments to wear
She manufactured robes and sold them

Faceless Styrofoam Wig Heads

I just came across a faceless Styrofoam wig head that can be used to support sheitels (wigs).  The Torah prohibits Jews from making graven images, and a styrofoam wig head is usually fashioned with a face. Many pious  Jews deface the head by removing the nose or ear.  With the availability of faceless wig heads, that should make life easier, I hope.

For more information about the prohibition on making and owning graven images, read this PDF file.

Training Girls in Dressmaking

In our times, it is highly commendable to train girls in the art of dressmaking and general sewing. Lessons should be given on this subject in schools, and if necessary, also in seminaries.

If the girl becomes really expert, she will even be able to make garments for herself, and later on, when married also for her daughters. Also, she could take up dressmaking as a profession.
