About Me

My shop is "Helen's Hatbox" on Etsy and I'm on Facebook at "Helen's Hatbox".

Welcome to Hat Academy Helen. I love the mad hatters FB site. As a full time milliner it reminds me there is nothing new and the hats of yesteryear are more amazing than todays Gaga styles!! I have perfected fabric covered pillboxes so look forward to teaching you some of these tips for the perfect finish. We have a friend here who breeds Cardigan corgis and she takes one of them to Aged Care respite centre every week as therapy for oldies who love it- they are such well natured dogs and smart. Best Wishes, ElaineM
