The very first on DVD format, an in depth instructional
dvd on the art of hatmaking. An opportunity to learn all the
secret techniques of hatmaking from a designer of 25 years. When I began my hat making adventure many years ago, I yearned for someone who could teach me the techniques and secrets of the wonderful milliners in the distant past. I, like you, have seen many wonderful examples of their expert couture skills in museums and antique shops and shows.
