The deadline for my RECEIVING the check is April 8.

Come one, come all!

If you’ve ever wanted to make a fascinator (one of those little hats that perches on your head), now is the time!  On Saturday, I will walk you through the steps. You will leave with the base wired and covered, plus a good start on your decorations!

To participate in the making, you will need a kit (contains supplies for 1 buckram and 1 sinamay fascinator), which I will order for you. The cost is $25 (includes shipping), check made payable to me, Nancy Harris. The deadline for my RECEIVING the check is April 8, as, first, I must order the kits and have them mailed to me. 

After that, I must set up the initial heads for you, so that your time is not spent waiting for the buckram to dry before you can work with it. The kits contain the base materials, wire, connectors, Petersham ribbon, and hat elastic.

Please see the list of supplies to bring below.

If you wish to simply observe, feel free to drop in! 

Call me if you have any questions: (303) 305-9191.
