# H1440 – Hat Tutorial

Hello Everyone!

The tutorial for this pattern is completed now, and will be posting up every Thursday morning until it’s completed.

The first section of this tutorial was published last November, and it took a while to navigate the learning curve of a new camera – and to get the instructions all written up.

If you would like to participate in the Sew Along – you’ll need to pick up a copy of the pattern for the hat.  The participants will receive the pattern sheet only.  As the updated graphics and detailed instructions will be posted here on the blog, as we work through them. The pattern cost is $ 4.00 (a nice discount!) which includes shipping to get it to you.  (Additional postage is required for our International friends.)

Interested?  Want to Sew Along?  Drop an email to us at:

And a Paypal invoice will be forwarded to you for the pattern sheet.

If you can’t wait, and want to dive right in – you can purchase the retail pattern, and the direct download of the complete tutorial at the links below:

New From Our Clients

This lovely version of our pattern # Z2773 in black and white was made for the Art Deco Weekend in Napier New Zealand, the biggest event of it’s kind inthe world (much bigger even than the Great Gatsby picnic held in San Francisco every year)!

This outfit won two first prizes at the event. “Women’s Reproduction Day Wear” and overall “Best in Show”

Announcing the first Vintage Pattern Lending Library Sew Along!

Starting November 6, 2009

The 1920’s Cloche Hat!

The Sew Along is a new Event hosted by the Library that will delve into the details of sewing a specific pattern from the Library’s collection.  Usually the pattern will be one in which the source material instructions are sketchy, incomplete or missing.  However, if there is a popular request, a pattern with more complete instructions may be featured.

For those participating in the Sew Along, the featured pattern will be offered at a discounted cost.  The participants will receive the pattern sheet(s) only.  As the updated graphics and detailed instructions will be posted here on the blog, as we work through them.

Every Friday the next section of the tutorial will be posted.  Participants will have one week to work through the set of directions, and ask questions before the following Friday when the next tutorial will be available.

Until the Sew Along for the current project is complete – it will only be accessible to those who are signed up as participants.

And a Paypal invoice will be forwarded to you for the pattern sheet, and you will be emailed a list of materials, and registered to access the first tutorial going up on November 6.
