Seasonal Updates

Eight days in, I am still kinda in shock that it is September. Okay, more than kinda.

With the coming of September, comes seasonal changes.

The Bad Millinery News – School starting means I will be spending my day at school rather than sewing. This means I will be making 1, maybe 2, millinery pieces a week instead of 10 to 15 a month as I have been lately. Keep this in mind when waiting for pieces because new pieces won’t be every couple days.

The Good Millinery News – This fall into holiday season I will continue to offer straw hats and bonnets. I usually transition fully to winter hoods and holiday decorations. This year, I am trying something different. This means straw millinery will be available in the shop for gift giving!

What you should know about holiday shopping – I close my Etsy shop for physical items early. I do not ship in the last 3 weeks before Christmas. This is to ensure pieces do not get tangled in the congested shipping and I am not adding to the stress of postal handlers at that time. I have several friends who work for the Post Office. They need sleep.

This Year’s Ornament – is my Straw Cornucopia. These can be found in the Holiday Whimsy section of my Etsy shop. I will do a special episode of Whimsy Wednesday on decorating the cornucopia.

This is part of my Share the Spirit initiative for the holiday season. This year’s holiday season is going to be hard for some of us for many reasons, be it distance from family, financial constraints, or a lack of creativity under stress. The Share the Spirit initiative will encourage each of us to share our spirit and help build on each other’s. I will be sharing fun projects on my blogs, bother historic and modern. I’ll also see if I can put some fun kits together for the shop.

I think that is it for now. It has been a long, long day. Please join me tomorrow evening for Whimsy Wednesday.

P.s. This may be a helpful link for those looking to gift a hat. “How to Sneak a Hat Measure.”
