Block of the Month – October 2017

Every month we offer 15% discount on one of our popular designs and this month it is the small saucer block FB76.

In fact this is a brand new block so you could be among the first to own and use it! If you haven’t used any of our saucer blocks with pressers, this could be your opportunity to try one out. Louise from Louise Claire Millinery shared some pictures with us and you can see both the process and the finished shape below. It couldn’t be easier to block as the presser (with a weight on top) naturally pulls everything tight helping to get rid of any creases in the sinamay.


Made on the Presser!











FB76 – Small Saucer Block


A small and neat saucer block with presser included. Both the main block and the presser have string grooves making it even easier to use the presser as a block in it’s own right. 230mm diameter (presser 170mm diameter).

  • 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'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!
