Block of the Month – May 2018

Every month we offer a discount on one of our popular designs, but this month it’s three blocks not one! FB19, FB19 and FB20 are all different sizes of the same design giving you a great choice – you can even have an extra discount for all three.

Our saucer blocks are particularly easy to use and these ones are probably the easiest of all – as such this would be a great introduction if you haven’t used one before. The sinamay is laid simply over the block and tied loosely into the string groove, the presser is then placed on top with some weight on and if necessary the sinamay can be pulled tighter to remove any creases, but with a little practice, you will find how tight it needs to be so that when the presser is placed on top, all the slack is taken up and the blocking completed in one go. In each case, the presser can also be used alone as well, making the blocks extra versatile.

  • A personal service

    Dedicated to providing you with the best hat blocks you can buy - here at Guy Morse-Brown, our focus is firmly on working with you to make your own personal creations.

    To make things with your hands is a fundamental part of human nature and whether it is the weaver, the felt maker, the block maker, or you the milliner, we are all part of a process that culminates in something that is more than just an object to admire - it is a statement, an expression that enriches the life of the wearer and creator alike.

    We feel that the parts of the process shouldn't be completely separated so we want to work with you to enable us both to share in it all. For that reason you won't find online ordering here on our website but you will find a huge range that shows that almost anything is possible. It's too simple to just add products to a cart; we want to keep alive the personal communication between block maker and milliner that used to be so essential. Get in touch with us and share your ideas, let us know what you want to make and we're ready to serve.

    They are almost too beautiful to use.

    I really appreciate your help, you are so approachable and kind and in my moment of stress your advice helped me see clearly :) I can't thank you enough x

    I really like the multiblocks - they fit together like a dream!
    Judy Parker - AUSTRALIA

    I'm more than happy- everything is just perfect. I've worked on many different blocks but I think those are the best quality I've ever seen and now I feel like I've just got an early birthday gift :). Thank You very much!
