Millinery Classes? Learn to make hats?

I’m gauging interest in the notion (ha!*) of teaching some small classes in millinery — that is, traditional hat-making. Not so traditional that you knit and then felt, but rather the kind that leads to possibly a fedora, but with many other shapes and options.

If I find that there is interest, I will go forth and find an appropriately sized space. You can see my work at, which I just mentioned in another post on a mostly unrelated subject, so please bear with me.

* A notion is a sewing item that is not fabric or thread — like buttons or scissors.

Hi Emily, I might be interested. I am a sewer, crafty girl, but never tried my hand at hat making. I think we may have met before. Is Lawrence Lee a common friend?  maria @
