Option 2: Purchase a Hat Making Kit


  • Hat Making Pattern of your choice
  • 2ply crown buckram (sufficient for the style of hat selected)
  • 19 Gauge Millinery Wire (sufficient for the style of hat selected)
  • Bias Binding (sufficient for the style of hat selected)

You provide:

  • Needles - curved and/or straight (sold separately under supplies)
  • Heavy duty thread

  • The larger hats are available in kits and completed frame upon request. Shipping charges may be higher due to the size of the brim buckram. These require custom pricing and shipping.
  • Glace millinery thread in 24AWG is no longer available and is no longer included in the kits. Suggest using heavy weight poyester thread or nylon thread available at fabric stores for hand stitching and attaching the brim and crown.
  • Needles are readily available at fabric stores so are no longer included in the kit. They can be purchased separately by clicking here.
