Solution to Summer Marketing Intern Search

I am producing/curating a Artists and Fleas - like artisan faire in the Los Angeles area. Our flagship market is in South Pasadena and I'm dreaming of expanding it out to communities outside the DTLA/Westside center. It's time for a marketing assist and I would love to find a marketing/p.r. intern for the summer. My first thought is to approach FIDM (Fashion Institute) Calling on MeFites for suggestions for other local possibilities/solutions.

Treating wool to make it softer?

I love my new cardigan, but it's just a tad bit itchy. It's 50% viscose, 25% polyamide, and 25% wool. Will washing it make it softer, or should I just return it? I'm disappointed that such a low percentage of wool would bother me, but here we are. Is there any way to treat wool-containing fabrics to make them softer?

Does anything on the market actually give you thicker hair?

I have fine, wavy/curly, thin hair, and I desperately want it to be thicker. Do any of the products, home remedies, or magic tricks on the market actually make hair thicker? I don't mean, "look thicker", I need there to actually be more hair on my head. Is there any hope? [more inside]

Wife made new beach handbag and she needs a label. Suggestion?

Maybe something we can print at home or make at home but I don't know where to get the material to print on. Or... we can buy them I guess but we've never done this before. Any help please. Thank you. OH, she is going to sell each one hand-made. Maybe a few, maybe a lot.

Birkenstock clog-a-likes?

I used to be able to find men's clogs at American Eagle Outfitters that were similar to the Birkenstock "Boston" clogs, but a lot cheaper. No longer! Does anyone know where I might find something similar suitable for wearing around the house and office?

Baby steps toward sharing my craft with others

Over the past year I figured out how to upcycle interesting clothing out of thrift store finds. Now that I've outfitted myself and my partner with more than enough cute one-of-a-kind shirts, I am thinking of ways to expand this hobby to others who have expressed interest. Can you help me come up with some options for baby steps beyond what I am currently doing? A tiny commission-only operation? A clothing label? Next steps? [more inside]

I bought a blazer that fits well in my shoulders and is in a fabric that I really like. However, it's a little big in the torso and as a result looks a bit boxy. Is there a way I can easily (and reversibly) make it fit better in the torso until I have time to get it altered? [more inside]
