"That all totally makes sense, thanks! At some point, I think I'd like to get the full bundle, even though I'm not an absolute beginner because I'm sure I could still find value in even the early lessons. :) "

"How does this differ from the previous mega bundle of courses? It's labelled as new, but I thought this or something like it existed before.... Haven't bought any courses yet, but I do want to eventually, once I can either save up money…"

"I've tried  a lot of different things for hat visors/brims. The pre-cut plastic brims are great, but are limiting in shape and size. What I have found that work great and allows me to design my own shapes is bonded leather board. It can be…"

Kristin Silverman replied to Elaine Mergard's discussion Millinery studio madness!
"I try to be good about not having pins on the floor. But hat blocks and bits of thread are definitely scattered around the room, including on the floor. And I also have a dog who looks kind of forlorn when I'm paying attention to hats and not…"

Kristin Silverman replied to Elaine Mergard's discussion What's the most fun thing to do in your millinery?

I Love Hats Because?
They're gorgeous and fun. Wearing a hat is a great way to have vintage style without being costume-y. Just a change of hat can switch up your entire look. And they're so collectable.
About Me
In addition to being a milliner, I have also been a graphic designer and a makeup artist. I have loved hats for a long time. When I started making hats, things just "clicked" and I feel like I found my calling.
