Hatmaker Week 1, January 2023: New Year, New Hats!

We are starting the new year with some wonderful hats! This week has been fantastic! My new felts are finally on the way to the studio, two new colors, that I will be able to share with you next week. It's been a while since I had a shipment of felts arriving to the studio, I kind of missed it. 

I have been exploring certain new details when finishing the hats. Recently, I have been looking at the impact of a different color thread for when I assemble the sweatbands or making the brim binding. If you look back at last weeks blog then you know what I mean. But also adding additional color details to the liner has added an incredible detail to the hats. The bow on the crown has been finished with a touch of a different color. Gold or as in this Camel fedora there is a touch of green that goes well with the color of the liner inside the hat. I am not charging extra to make your hat stand out like this. Just let me know what you want and I am happy to make it for you. 

I am very much looking forward to the next month when I am expected to move to a new home and a new place for my studio. A much larger place where I will be able to expand and house new tools and machines that will bring the hats to a whole different level. It will be easier on my hands for sure. Don't worry, the hats will still be hand made. Perhaps towards the summer months you will see what I mean. 

I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday! Are you ready for the new year 2023? I sure am. As always, I appreciate your orders, keeping me busy, kind words and donations.
