Hats straight off the block



It's been a busy day in the shop but I managed to take some photographs this morning of three hats one of which sold this afternoon.!
The top hat is a knotted straw crown, fine straw brim and silk trim.
A very classic little hat but can be worn with so many styles so always great to have on my hat wall.
The red straw is an over sized beret with a hand tooled red silk flower. It's the type of hat that someone doesn't need but just wants.
The final pictures are of a really unusual block that I bought from Milliner Rachel Skinner in London, when I started my business. It's very different and can make some great shapes. Here it was used for blocking pinopok then sculpted after blocking to create a striking hat on a small base. It sold this afternoon.I shall make another but not the same.

Hat Therapy loves Instagram

In the last couple of weeks I have started using instagram and find that even I can make photograph's look half decent. Here is a little selection that I have taken around the shop. I really like it's ease of use it it's another way to link up with people. On the hat front there has been some furious making going on so I will be taking some pictures of the latest pieces just off their blocks. It's that time of year when I just can't make them quick enough.!
