Welcome to the Mercantile

For those of you who may have come to this site in search of custom made hats, I apologize that you will no longer find a catalog here. I may make the odd hat now and then, but I am now pursuing other forms of textile work, mostly based on 1900s women’s wear. Click on the tag cloud on my Home Page to find examples of my previous works, or check Facebook and Instagram for works-in-progress. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in commission work.

I am a new member of the Powerhouse Team at the Fremont Arts Council where I am hosting “Drop-In Mondays” through August 15, and teaching introductory textile embellishment techniques on “Textile Tuesdays” in July. I am also the new caretaker for the textile loft at the Powerhouse, where I will gladly accept donations of your cast off costumes, fabrics and sewing notions.

One of my other projects is writing a retrospect of my 40+ years of hatmaking, which I hope to publish in early 2024. Thank you for your past patronage, and for continuing to follow my artist’s journey.
