My hat blocks arrived and gave me a start of inspiration. But then I received my hat making DVD and now I am in a frenzy of inspiration. The DVD is excellent-clear and detailed information that provides the fundamentals. Laurie Hall, USA

The blocks are absolutely beautiful and the craftsmanship is superb. I shan’t get my blocks from anyone else. Michelle Webb – UK
TIP: blocking in one with an up turned brim
Blocking in one means that only one piece of felt or straw is used to create the crown and brim together. First the crown is blocked with a felt or straw hood, after which it is turned upside down and pushed through the brim block. With the crown supported underneath, the felt is then pulled down and pinned to form the brim. When ordering, choose a brim size that is 3/4 inch bigger than the crown.
