I love making hats because the opportunities to learn new techniques and to creative original ideas are endless. I love learning and trying new things and millinery is a perfect medium to combined my different skill sets. I enjoy designing head wear that is sculptural and stands out from every day designs.
My name is Amy Fowler, and I work from my home studio in McKinleyville, CA, just north of the Humboldt Bay, and on the ocean near the beautiful Redwoods National Forest. In 2012, I relocated from the middle of the country to the coast for a full time job in jewelry/eCommerce, I started my millinery business, Humboldt Haberdashery.
I started teaching myself to make hats, and opened my one person supply business to help support my new interest. Since then, as my abilities have grown, so has my supply business, to the point i was able to leave my full time job the end of 2016. My supplies business allows me to keep up with my computer and eCommerce interests while allowing me a constant supply of materials and colors to experiment with.
