Paula Singleton’s 2013 Kentucky Derby Museum Hat

I have entered the Kentucky Derby Museum hat contest every year since 2010. I am pleased to announce that for the fourth year, one of my hats has been selected to be a part of the annual display. This year’s entry is a lovely spring green asymmetrical straw hat featuring black and white ribbon with stripes and dots. A huge spray of feathers gives it height and presence. I am honored to have been selected again this year.Here’s a link to the other hats that made the cut. As you can see, there are some fabulous styles to compete with! http://www.flickr.com/photos/77780824@N08/sets/72157634195543015/

What a Great Hat Open Studio Saturday

 

My studio will be open this coming Saturday, September 15th, from 11 am – 3 pm. I have a lot of new things for you to see and will be discounting a few hats from the past – some of the “arty” pieces that have been in shows and galleries as well as some styles I’m no longer making. The red and blue beret below was hand felted and hand beaded – originally priced at $160 it’s now just $60. The newsboy cap was originally $98 and has been marked down to $58. Hope you’ll stop by to see what’s new for fall and winter…and while you’re at it, take advantage of some great bargains from prior seasons!
