Critique: "This guide is indispensable for those doing research in the fields of clothing and textiles... Through the published guide and the website, this project is one step toward connecting researchers with valuable artifacts located in various types of collections across the country." -- Katie Knowles, Journal of Southern History, Vol. 74, No. 4, Nov. 2008
