A friend of mine was in Srinagar in the 60s, and bought a small tapestry with Arabic writing on it. How do we go about getting it appraised? What does the writing on it say? [more inside]

Help me identify this largeAsiantapestry. It's 128 inches long and 75 inches wide, and belonged to my great-grandmother (who lived in Germany, if that helps) so must be at least 100 years old. Any information you can glean from the linked pictures would be really helpful -- what language is the writing? What might this thing be?

I've spent the last few months off and on researching web frameworks, but I haven't got a really good handle on how the web-development community feels about them. Help me choose! [more inside]

I am looking for either books or online resources for Bayeux Tapestry - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bayeux_Tapestry - style illustrations (or any other book/site that depicts depict medieval life.) So far, the illustrations on the web are of relatively small size or poor quality.

I have an 8-foor-square tapestry. Unfortunately, it has no loops or hooks so I have no idea how to hang it from the wall. Any suggestions? (more inside) [more inside]
