Hat Lab Starts on Thursday

There's a chill in the air and I reached into my fall hat bin yesterday because I was ready. It's almost like the fall has come just for us to start our Hat Lab on Thursday.

I am not teaching the class, but will be staying and stitching for most classes because 1. I love hats! and 2. Because Irina is such an excellent teacher, I can always learn many things when I take her hat class.

Irina is the hat expert. Plain and simple. She's been doing this a long time and has learned from the best and now creates patterns and samples for the best. Coach.

Irina's passion for hats started with her first trip to London in 1994: inspired by Top Shop, upon return she made hats for the artists friends. Soon she became famous in her native Ukraine for her casual, understated creations. Innovative and resourceful, she was working with vintage and recycling materials producing original collections and fashion performances. 

Here are just a few of the adorable and highly functional designs we'll be working on in class:
