How To Make Hats & Gloves {15 Vintage Books} on CD

How to Make Hats" by Ruby Carnahan is a wonderful hat making instruction manual - 28 lessons - 500+ illustrations, with patterns and instructions for 30 hat styles! Ruby says, "A hat reflects a mood, declares an intention, or celebrates an occasion! But what is a hat? A little material... some time...some skill...some imagination... and you have a hat that would cost quite a bit at a retail shop. What's more, if you designed and made the hat, you're wearing an original...something you won't meet at a party, or find staring at you from a department store window.
Millinery is an art. It pays rich rewards...in self-expression...in a delightful hobby...in a new, more interesting appearance...in building a glamourous wardrobe with a slender budget...perhaps in earning a welcome part-time income, or even a highly paid profession!
This book will help you, because it is the result of years of experience at designing, making hats and teaching millinery. Its 28 lessons have been planned with great care; each one gives you a fundamental principle that you'll want to remember-to make personalized, stylish hats today, or ten years from today. No matter how infinitely varied hats may look, there are only a few basic forms, and a few basic ways to vary those forms.
