Celebrating 9 Years Of Hat Therapy

So on Saturday there will be much to celebrate as you can see by my notice at the top of the page.
The shop has been dressed with foliage, lights, tartan clad mannequins made from chicken wire with ivy skirts and fairy lights for the windows.
Lots of lovely hats and accessories have been made with a last dash of making tomorrow and Friday in preparation for Saturday.
I guess it is an achievement these days to survive in business and it's good to have lots of people who have purchased hats and accessories in the shop for a festive drink and food to say 'cheers'.
Christmas is really drawig closer so we have a great selection of smaller gift ideas as well.
All made with fabric using millinery techniques and trimmimgs.
If you are local or planning to visit Hebden Bridge please feel free to drop in anytime 10am till 5pm.

Scottish Tweed And Pretty Buttons


I was offered a lovely piece of Scottish wool tweed last week and as soon as I got it back in the workroom I was eager to cut out a pattern and make something straight away.
It made a smart little cap and a neck wrap and there is still some left to create a few extra pieces.
On Sunday I went to a wedding fair and it was very busy with lots of lovely people.
I made several new hats to take with me including a little button with grey lace and vintage buttons.
I actually sold one hat which is very unusual at a fair as people are normally getting ideas but a lady fell in love and had to take it home.!
This week I need to make the start of my Christmas decorations and lots of stock as I will be holding a festive celebration at the shop on the 29th of November from 10am to 5pm.
The shop will be 9 and I will be....... quite old.
So pop in if you can there'll be drinks, tastie bites to eat and lots of merriment.
