I Love Hats Because?
I love wearing them, and even more making them. I enjoy experimenting with materials - conventional and all sorts of media not usually associated with hat making. Just wish I had time for more hat making and more opportunities to wear them.
About Me
I am just somebody who loves life and all its opportunities; loves colour and texture; delights in encouraging others especially young people starting off on the mystery trip of...." what shall I do for a career"!
I don't believe in retirement only in changing direction and tuning the next adventure to fit a different pace of life. Make the most of every opportunity and ALWAYS think 'outside the box'!

Hi Marion, I have spoken to Cindy from Millinery Online and she sends coloured silk abaca world wide, freight is not expensive there are no import problems and usually you get within 5 days

hope this helps until we can get the custom colouring lesson up x

Hi Marion, with your frangipani flower, can I suggest using more of a contrast with the colours, sometimes when the tones are very similar they do not stand out as well.
