I really enjoyed my first open day at Marketplace Studios on Sunday 14 June. It was lovely to meet fellow hat lovers and share the work I have done since I moved into the studios 5 months ago.This was the first time I have shown my hats publicly and everyone has been so supportive.
There was a great buzz in Stockport Market Place, thanks to the Vintage Village. I managed to get a very quick dash through to purchase these great hat brushes from Wayne of All our Yesterdays. All in all it was a fantastic day.
I want to say a huge ‘Thank-you’ to everyone who came in to look at the work, say hello and stop to chat about hats. Your interest and encouragement has given me renewed energy to develop my work. I’m looking forward now to getting back to the studio where I am going to be working on my free-form wool hats.
