"You do need a "Nail" on your straw braid machine.  It is used to guide your braid and will keep the stitching even while attaching the braid as you sew.  I oil my machine in all of the holes, just wished they had a sewing manual…"

"Hi Elsie,I found these on e-bay about 3 years ago. It took me 2 years of looking.  If you find one, be sure you see how it stitches, if they can't show you that, don't buy one. I purchased 6 of them at one time, sold 2. Go to YOU TUBE…"

Profile Information

I Love Hats Because?
My mom started me wearing hats when I was a child. I always had a hat to match my Resurrection Day outfit. In my culture, the older generation like myself wear more hats than the younger ladies. I don't feel dressed on Sunday if I don't wear my hat to church. Hat RULE.
About Me
I'm married, mom of 3 grown daughters, 2 grand children, retired after working 36 years, love crafts, sewing, crocheting, millinery, jewelry making, embellishing my shoes and purses, doing florals, and weddings. Fishing is also another hobby I do. I LOVE DOGS.

Welcome to Hat Academy Rose You are Special. Thanks for sharing your designs with us You really have mastered using Buckram. I love the bling as we are so restricted to add bling  in Australia. I discussed with Web designer whether we can have a store in the site to allow students to sell their hats - see how it works out. Blessings ElaineM ps thanks for your encouragement as there were times I needed it.
