Gearing up for Fall

My fall collection is slow in coming together, but there has been a lot of R&D. I'm starting to make new types of trims: handmade (by me, of course) flowers sculpted from silk satin, silk velvet, cotton velveteen, silk taffeta, silk organza, etc. These are going to go on lots of new hats styles, especially for bridal.

Also, I've been learning some new featherwork, and ribbonwork styles.

I've got another set of brand new, custom hat blocks en route from Guy Morse Brown Hatblocks in the UK, so new shapes are also on the way.
