HHat blockat trick!!

Look what arrived at Ministry of Handmade today….I am super excited to have been given two old hat blocks by a lovely friend, Jen.

I am not sure of the story of these little beauties except that they came originally from a school and were used in Home Economics classes. Who knows who crafted them or how old they are, but the shorter one has had lots of use as it is full of pin holes. (A very good reason not to use real heads when making hats, I think.)

These new additions will have pride of place in my studio and I am even more motivated
to run some hat making workshops.

Hat trick = 3 hat posts in a row!!
