NEW KID IN TOWN

Hi Everybody!  I am so excited about taking this Intermediate Course.  I am also thrilled to have a new group of people with whom I can discuss hats, problems and triumphs.  I have sewed most of my life.  At about age ten or eleven someone gave me an old sewing machine that only did straight stitching and didn't do that very well.  I later found out it need little more than a major tune up.  I began sewing doll clothes for me and my six younger sisters.  In high school I made prom gowns then…See More

Profile Information

I Love Hats Because?
I am first of all, retired. But I have been a professional Seamstress most of my adult life. Three years ago I started making hats and chemo caps because my sister died from a brain tumor. My knowledge and skills grew and continued. The more skilled I got the more I loved millinery.

That is still true, so I decided to take a step back and get some "proper" formal training. I took several classes in the USA, while on holiday. Now that I am living in Cyprus I would like to take this program and be able to make nicer hats. I have fallen in love with millinery.

This beginners course is my Christmas gift from my husband. He has been extremely supportive about all this hat business and even gave me the largest bedroom for a studio. What a man!

What a great motivator for me to do well!
About Me
I am an American living in Cyprus with my British husband. I want to learn more and possibly open a shop. I am retired and so is my husband.
