A piece of wisdom if you please: Saying you don’t look good in hats is like saying you don’t look good in shoes. You just haven’t found the right one yet.

Welcome to the family Kristin, it’s great to have you joining us! We love hats at Mr X Stitch and our Millinery Operations column has certainly been illuminating. Millinery Operations goes out on the third Thursday of each month; in the meantime, here’s three posts you might have missed that are worth the attention!
