Hi! the icon is next to the link icon if you haven't found it and if its on this messaging area.
Thank you for the information Carena. I am going to be blocking all weekend to get some cloches ready to open my boutique in a weeks time.
Just had a Fedora block made and now having a tipper made I hope that this will make it easier to get the good shape in the crown. I love these. I used to wear one about 25 years ago and I have sold a couple. The ladies say that the Fedora make them feel sexy and mysterious.
They do have to wear the Fedora on an angle to get the correct look.
The fedora block that I have I bought from Hat Blocks Direct and the price is very good. You can buy a brim and tipper to go with it. I found that the brim was great with a string groove, it made the edge very sharp.
I know what you mean I get carried away with blocks, silk and sinamay. Then sit for days wondering what to do first then time passes and I haven't done anything. I feel that I have been a permanent student. I love making flowers just bought the lessons on French flower making to extend my knowledge. I think if I had a husband I would have been divorced more than one. LOL Just going to put feathers and crystals on to some small fascinators I have made from left over sinamay I have made about 25. I will sell these at a fair to get some money back, so I can buy more materials.
