I use an iron to manipulate the bottom of the wool body into the brim.                                                                                                         My berets are an example of the cut and sewn technique. I design the pattern using paper and then use that pattern to cut pieces from flat fabric that are sewn together to make the hat. I am inspired by the ways art, music and fashion set trends and help define a generation. I aim to obtain an edge of timelessness in all my hats. Recently as an artist I have been using the techniques and tools used in hat making to create soft sculptures that are an expression of

  1. Please let me know where I can see a selection of your hats. I saw a few at the Fuzzy Goat in Thomasville (2 of the 5 had sold when I was there) and would love to see a selection that includes hats for warm weather. Thanks so much, Susan
