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. My goal on these DVDs is to be that mentor for you that I wanted so dearly in the past. To show you the way to become expert in your hat making skills. And then the sky is the limit.

Disk 1, covers all you need to know about how to makie fine straw hats. Setting up a workroom, gathering millinery supplies and equipment, blocking straw bodies and hoods, constructing straw hats and trimming them out.

Disk 2, covers felt hat making. Blocking and constructing felt hats, Cut ,bound and wired edge brim treatment techniques, feather work, and trimming felt.

Disk 3, covers, making ultrasuede sweatbands, making bias trims and ribbons and saving a ton of money by making your own wide or fancy ribbons and trims, and taming that millinery wire. View samples video clips at right--->>>
