From little acorns ……..
After some intensive training, my first creations were done in a small room of my home in Somerset. I laboured hard and long over these little treasures but all were sold at the first event. I can remember feeling worried and nervous when designing and creating them, could I transfer my minds ideas to the physical world, would people even bother to look at them and try them on. Well they did and the others that were added to these, a total of 35 in first year bearing in mind that I was working full time and doing the hats in the evenings and weekends. I had rudimentary tools, equipment and blocks, often using home utensils as shapes to design around and homemade cheap materials. My dream was to be able to buy some custom made hat blocks from Guy Morse-Brown hat blocks which seemed years away.
