Thought I’d do a quick message as I haven’t blogged much recently….just been busy making hats!
Melbourne Derbyshire opened its door recently quite literally for the Arts Festival Trail where artist local and further afield use residents homes as a base to show and sell their work…ranging from paintings, ceramics, textiles, photography, printing, design and craft items plus many more. Over the weekend we saw many thousands of people come to Melbourne to enjoy the trail, the art, the food and the Music.
I had my hats on display as I live in Melbourne this was a joy. They were well received as always and it was good to talk to people about hats and to dispel any myths about having a hat made being to expensive or exclusive.
Here is a picture of some of my hats on display with my cat on the corner of the table…she is not a hat.
