As a child, I would look through store circulars in the Sunday newspaper, cutting out pictures for the Christmas list that I hung on the refrigerator. I added more items as I saw them, dreaming of actually getting all the things I glued to my advertising collage. Few of my outlandish requests - a horse and my own television, stereo and telephone - made their way under our Christmas tree. In their place were gifts that mattered much more: homemade stuffed animals, a handcrafted wooden rocking horse, knitted sweaters, and customized coupons for an extra hour of TV past my bedtime or a family day trip to a place of my choice.

It's less than three weeks until Fall Fashion Week 2006, and Diane von Furstenberg designer Alexandra DeYonge is still making the final cuts for the show. Does the grouping have the right mix of solids and prints? Are the blouses sufficiently ruffled? Are the slacks paired with the right jacket? And most important, which of the jersey knit wrap dresses - von Furstenberg's signature item - should lead this afternoon's show? This week, top designers will gather once again in Bryant Park's heated tents to present their ready-to-wear collections.

Although "The Quaker Tapestry" exhibit at Swarthmore College consists of separate embroidered panels, they are connected by a common thread that weaves together the themes of Quaker history, Quaker ideals and Quaker life. The tapestry project was started in England in 1981 by Anne Wynn-Wilson of the London Yearly Meeting. Of the 77 panels already completed in the British work, 24 are on display in the McCabe Library at the college. Each of the 25- by-21-inch panels was researched, designed and embroidered by members of Friends Meetings in 10 countries.

In her own way, Tania Diakiw O'Neill is an archaeologist, uncovering artifacts and stockpiling them at home for study. For years she has drawn pleasure from the task of analyzing every detail of each find, taking note of the minute differences among the specimens. Over the years, O'Neill has acquired an extensive collection of her special antiques, which, luckily for her family, are not as cumbersome as dinosaur fossils or ancient Greek sculptures. Actually, the Philadelphia woman's interests lie in unraveling the art of Ukrainian embroidery.

Thirteen members of the Bucks County Chapter of the Embroiderers Guild of America took part earlier this month in an embroidery workshop at the Woodriver Retirement Village. Carol List of Madison, N.J., gave instruction during the six-hour workshop. The guild members learned how to convert the various shapes and surface patterns of the scallop and spiral shells into a three-dimensional needlepoint design. Working on canvas-covered frames attached to wooden stands, the guild members took their designs from a booklet of shell patterns.

District Attorney Lynne Abraham yesterday told a modern-day tale of rags to riches. The riches were said to have been garnered by eight suspects who allegedly ran a multimillion-dollar counterfeit clothing manufacturing ring in Philadelphia. The rags - cheap forgeries of top-name designer clothes and professional sportswear - were deep-discounted to customers for at least four years before cops shut down the estimated $2 million-a-year operation this summer. Standing near several tables covered with counterfeit Calvins, knock-off Nikes and fake FUBUs, Abraham announced the arrests that resulted from a lengthy joint probe by police and her office.

History may remember Harry S. Truman as the president who ordered the atomic bombing of Japan, the president who fired Gen. Douglas MacArthur, or the one who followed Franklin D. Roosevelt. But to Stella Crispino, he will always be the president who turned the eagle's head. In the great scheme of things, President Truman's change in the design of the presidential flag may not amount to much. But such minutiae is the stuff of painstaking work for Crispino and 14 other women at a 47-year-old federal factory in South Philadelphia.

Louis dell'Olio, who took over the Anne Klein collection when Donna Karan left to form her own, successful company, sent a strong message to his former design partner yesterday with a fluid, focused collection synonymous with smart money. Dell'Olio showed short, slim skirts and tunics in tobacco brown and elephant gray; wool crepe peplum jackets, and bias-cut swing skirts. Yet it was dell'Olio's slacks - tailored, ending in a slight flair - that moved him into Karan territory.
