Hello everyone. I am new to this forum and i just wanted to say hello to you all and i look forward to interacting with everyone. My name is Todd and I have been interested in the civil war all my life. I have been reenacting since 2000. I hail from the Northwest Ohio area and I travel all over the country to various events. In 2000 I started a small buisness making flags. Out of pure need for a flag for my own unit i made one by hand and myself being a perfectionist i needed one that was of way better quality to show off my unit. So after the 4th flag a fellow in Georgetown, Ohio offered to buy one of the flags and ended up having me make him a custom one. I then went on a major fact finding mission to view various collections in several other states and uncovering quite a few facts in helping me make period correct hand sewn flags, yes thats right i typed Hand Sewn. They may take a little bit more time than with a machine(even the 1852 model H&M machine i have) but the quality is what i have always been after, from state flags to regimental yankee flags i have made them all. If any of you have ever met the fellow named Niles Clark that portrays Gen. Pickett at Gettysburg i made all but the virginia state flags that he flys.

I hope that any knowledge i have gained from my endeavors and studies may help others and i offer these up to you all.

Here is a link to my website:http://foreverfreeflags.spruz.com/default.asp

 

Thank you

 

Todd:)

have you got pics of any of your completed flags? That must be a very time consuming craft. If I ever find a picture of my Great Grandfathers regimental colors -2nd Ga. Cavalry Reg.- I might like to have a flag made. Very cool little business you've got there.

oh yeah welcome to the group!

My prices vary depending on what you want, what type of fabric you want, etc. and most importantly when you want it.
