Welcome to our hat making class!

If you're asking what can I do when I learn the basic pillbox? Look at this hat - it is a pillbox with a brim on top! The artistic way it floats is done by me. You can come up with your own design or use mine! This is your chance to build a pillbox hat from scratch for only $155.00 per class (cost of kit is included)! My promise is that when you leave my class you will be able to wear your hat that Sunday and show it off to your friends.
