I love hats because they harken back to an era of sophistication and class. I feel every woman should have a good hat that she loves and makes her feel like she can hold her head high (and every man!).
I am a beginning mad hatter, and I love every minute of it. I've always been around textiles and clothing through my mother; she runs her own vintage restoration business, and my appreciation of the beauty of construction grew through her. I've had experiences in theatre, antique rug restoration, vintage clothing handling, and now hats!
