What tops a Hat

Making hats is a very challenging undertaking and without a doubt the best part of the process has been the wonderful people I have been meeting in my millinery quest...

 I was fortunate to take a very informative hat blocking class is San Francisco with Jasmin Zorlu. She really knows hat making and is now living teaching and pursuing her millinery dreams in NYC.

My only other formal millinery education has been a 16 week millinery class at Saddleback College with Joan Goodspeed. She is an extremely entertaining teacher.

Learning about millinery skills is very interesting but, what is really inspiring is finding artisans who are actually practicing the millinery arts.

But, of course the best part of ANY creative endeavor is the hilarious, fabulous meeting of fellow wacky wonderful people who totally understand a hat obsession :)
