HAT LOVE! Exhibition, November 1 through 30, 2019


Social Fabric is proud to host an exhibition and “salon” of hats, entitled Hat Love!  We LOVE hats.  There’s no way around it.  Come in and see WHY – there are SO many lovely chapeaus, made by a group of 10 milliners (Seattle and local).

These are amazing, hand-made hats by folks who have studied and excelled at the art of Millinery. YOU who loved our exhibit last year, were the driving force behind our repeat exhibition of the work of these milliners.

Here are just a FEW of the hats. They range from traditional fedoras to fascinators to fabulous fashion caps and more! Check it out…

The first hat (Ruby Fedora) is by Wayne Wichern.  If you want to learn how to make hats – THIS is the man you want to talk to. Red Fedora with feathersHe’s been teaching millinery in Seattle for more years that we all want to remember.





Next is a saucy and fun pink floral and beribboned fascinator by Mabel M HatworksPink Fascinator hat with ribbon and feathers.  She’s got more creativity in the last joint of her pinky finger than most people have in their entire arm!






Check out this great hat by Heather Daveno. This is called a dress-maker hat because it’s made of sewn fabric elements rather than blocked felt.  Heather is the QUEEN of embroidered elements. Purple hat with gold embroidery and faux caracul lamb trimAlmost all her pieces have an oriental theme.  They’re immensely wearable – you can wear them ANYWHERE! This hat has a faux caracul lamb trim – SO cozy on a cold day!

ALSO, her hats are VERY affordable!





Here’s a fun and very unexpected hat.  This is a blocked felt cap.  If you know someone who loves chocolate – well hello holiday gift!  This piece is by our very own (local) Deb Waters.

Brown Hat with band that says "Chocolat"

The beauty of this hat is it’s easy to wear because a visored cap is such a contemporary tradition (is that an oxymoron?)  You KNOW how it will fit and look without even trying it on!





Lastly, THIS sweet sweet little morsel is made by Skagit Valley artist, Daria Wheatley.  It’s navy blue velour with a black velvet band/bow trim.  This hats looks great on everyone!Navy Velour hat with black velvet trim
