Taking a tea break & Moooustache Veils

So this past Friday I went to the Millinery Art Alliance’s high tea at the Peninsula Hotel.  It was amazing and a much needed break from hatting…..you know to go look at other hats.  There were a few pieces I just fell in love with and plan to save some hat money for.  Of course I made 6 hats trying to find the right hat for the occasion.

I decided on this hand embroidered one I finished this week for my spring collection.  Ain’t it bright?  Needless to say I got a lot of looks but also tons of compliments.  Plus apparently no one wants to sit next to the lady with a crazy hat on the train…So yay for not sharing a seat.

Here’s some pictures of the high tea.

It was so amazingly tasty.  I can’t wait for the next show in April.  Hopefully I’ll have enough for a few hats by then.

After that it was back to business.  I taught a family art class at the Lubeznik Center for the Arts.  We made hats and headdresses out of these little cardboard and felt templates I made.  It’s amazing to see other people creativity at work. All the pieces were so unique and quirky.  We all had a blast and people really got into it.  I’m supposed to be teaching a fascinator making class March 24 but so far no one has signed up 😦

If you’re in the Michigan City area this Friday you should come to the Lubeznik Center for the Arts opening of Ladies & Gentlemen, Children Of All Ages, Step Right Up! It’s a collection of circus banners from the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s.  There’s going to be a sword swallower and I’m making tons of deck of card hats, mustache veils, and funky glasses on veils for the occasion.

Well until next time I’m off to work.  I haven’t even started on my spring collection really aside from prep and I’ve got 3 weeks!
