The Art of Hat Making

HoM Core

Unisex…Utilitarian…Universal I spent a chunk of time in August seeking inspiration for the fall line  and had to keep digging until I landed on the ideas that felt authentic to now.  HoM Core is the end result.  What kind of fashion are we wearing at this moment and what is necessary clothing?    We dress […]

Annual Hat Sale

If it’s the last Saturday in September, you can count on it being the HOM’s annual hat sale.  While we won’t be doing an in person event this year, the hats are all scheduled to go live on Shopify at 9 am 9/26.  I will also be posting some special instagram deals during the day […]

Derby Hat Sale….

Let this off Kentucky Derby year be your win.  I am featuring a selection of the hats we pre made for this year’s derby at crazy steals.  I never like to see them hang around for too long (or I won’t have room for new ideas) and would rather seem them on your heads than […]

House of MacGregor 3.0

After closing the Bishop Art’s location last month I took a few weeks to regroup and came to the conclusion that the best move in our current climate for the house of hats is in my own backyard. We are converting a detached garage into the new HOM and have I got a deal for […]

Adaptation

I am so sad to say that we are closing the Bishop St. location and moving the hat shop into an at home studio for the time being.  We packed up all the hats over the 4th of July weekend and had a chance to reflect on how stunning that space has been!  The pride […]

An interesting few months….

Well, it’s been an interesting few months but we are still making hats and incredibly grateful to all our wonderful clients that are keeping us in business right now.  Every sale counts, not just to keep the lights on but for the creative outlet that hat’s has always given me.  It’s become even more important […]

A Re-Scheduled Kentucky Derby, a Pandemic, and Home Schooling Kids

I hope that everyone is staying home, staying safe, and washing their hands.  The hat shop is still making hats and I am sorting through what my home studio situation looks like with kids in tow.  On the plus side, maybe they will learn to sew and can put all my labels in!  If you […]

How far out are we cancelling events???

Is the derby happening? Welcome to the elephant in my room…I am concerned and taking the same health precautions as the rest of y’all right now and, like all small business owners, am judging the financial risks too. Hat makers across the country are really kept afloat by one big event, the Kentucky Derby. While […]

Custom Derby Hat Orders!

March has started off with a bang on custom derby hat orders, which is always welcome.  If you are planning on a custom hat for this May’s race, might I recommend ordering it in the next week or two.  Let’s be on the safe side and get all those supplies in the studio this month […]

I am stocking our shelves with derby and luncheon hats as fast as my hands will sew and creative ideas come to mind!  Sketching, daydreaming, museum visits, and collaborating with clients is the fountain all my ideas come from.  If you are headed to the derby, we stop taking custom orders on April 1st but […]
