Q&A with HandiCraftKate

Stefanie Japel asked:
This is one of the best-looking felted hats I've seen! Great work!!
HandiCraftKate answered:
Thanks Stefanie! I have been thinking about maybe doing a video of how I make them, it is really not as hard as you might think!
mthucpc235229 asked:
love it . would like to know how to make it .
HandiCraftKate answered:
Are you a wet felter? Have you ever used a resist when felting?
sallybea asked:
Where is the video to watch please
HandiCraftKate answered:
Hi Sally! The" video" is here: http://www.hatshapers.com go the very bottom of the page and click on the Bell Cloche Free Online Hat Shapers "How-To" Pop-Up Slideshows! It is not really a video, sorry for the confusion.
traveldiva asked:
Where do you purchase the hat shapers? Can you use anything else?
HandiCraftKate answered:
Here is where I buy the hat shapers I use: http://www.hatshapers.com/ Other people use many differnt things from ballons to balls to flat resists, the hatshapers are best for consistant results though.
mary.tayl1513005 asked:
I just joined craftsy and I love hats. I took a class in making hats almost 35 years ago but did not keep up with it. I am getting ready to retire and I might just start again. Where do you get your merino wool? i simply love what you have done.
HandiCraftKate answered:
Hi Mary, I get my merino wool from lots of different places but mostly on etsy. I really like WC Mercantile for really inexpensive wool.
