Hello hat friends, I don’t have much wisdom to bring you today in terms of the state of the world, but I can offer you some pretty handmade flapper and Edwardian style hats along with plenty of knitting distraction. A friendlier alternative to the news.

I am actually somewhat used to isolation as this is what crafts people do. I often turn to knitting and sewing videos, not so much for the information, but more to bring a friend into the studio with me. So, in the above video I ramble on endlessly about hats and knitting and show you a pretty walk through Lunenburg and even give you a little glimpse into me practicing The Charleston (it strangely helps me). I hope you can use the little video I made in the same way. Have me over for a little visit while you do your chores or drink your coffee…Why yes, I’d love a cup…cream, no sugar, please.

Before I go, I will mention that I have added lots of new hats to my website. Don’t hesitate to ask for other colours. Here’s the one I am most proud of at the moment. It fits a slightly larger than average head size. I talk lots about it in the video. Also be sure to click on the little button for your currency. It’s not exact, but close.

And, Lastly….I would so appreciate you sharing this post with your circle of friends. If you enjoy the video please give it a like, or better yet, subscribe. I wish you all the best of health and I look forward to hearing from you. Love, Anna
