The Art of Hat Making

September in the Studio

We are back in the studio this month working through some of the new projects that came together (mentally at least) in West Texas.  This is discoloration technique that I will be debuting at the end of September.  The shop is currently open Tuesday through Friday 10-2:30, Saturday’s 12-5, or by appointment.

HOM 10 Year

We celebrated an amazing 10 year anniversary on July 29th with beautiful friends and clients in attendance.  The studio will be by appointment only for the month of August.  The easiest way to get in touch is to email info@thehouseofmacgregor.com.  I apologize for any inconvenience!

 

July is Here and It’s Our 10 Year Anniversary!

We are celebrating our 10th year this month at our studio in Settles Garage!  There will be a big to do at the end of the month so stay tuned for details.  Our shop hours for July are 10-3 Tuesday through Friday and 12-5 on Saturdays.  We are located above Bolsa Restaurant in Bishop Art’s.  Below are a few pics of our latest hats…

June at the Studio

We are in the studio this month Tuesday-Friday 10-3 pm and Saturdays 12-5.  Stop by or call to make an appointment, we are above the restaurant Bolsa in Oak Cliff. Currently in production on summer hats and special Ascot pieces.

Shop Hours!

Bear with me as I get the hat shop kids out of school and into their summer camps!  The studio will be closed Thursday May 24th but open Friday the 25th and Saturday 26th from 12-5.  We will be closed over the holiday and will re open on Thursday May 31st from 10-5, Friday June 1st 10-1:45, and Saturday June 2nd 12-5…or by appointment if you can’t keep track of all that!

And they’re off…and so are we!

After a busy two months of sewing Kentucky Derby hats as fast as our fingers can go we will be taking a week off from the studio and re-opening Saturday May 12th from 12-5.  In the meantime, peruse some of the custom hats The House of MacGregor sent to the races this year!

The clock is ticking…

The Derby is just around the corner! I’m always amazed how fast the season seems to fly by for me. I get so wrapped up in custom creations and hats for the shop that I wake up and the races are on!

But take heart, there is still time to snag a fabulous head piece for Derby Days. We aren’t taking custom orders any longer but we have some beautiful hats that we can tweak for you! We recommend coming in, falling in love with your hat, then picking a dress to match.

Smaller hats run $175-$305 and larger hats run $375-$475. Here are some examples of what we have ready to go!

 

Kentucky Derby Hat Season

The most fun (and busiest) time of year is upon us at the hat shop.  We LOVE making derby hats and this will be our 15th year doing so.  If you are headed to the race, ideally you can pop in the month of March with your outfit and we can make something up to match your ensemble.  We also have derby hats ready off the shelf that we can tweak so you feel your best in it.  Here are some of our current creations.  The smaller hats are $175-$305 and the bigger ones are $375-$475.  Please call us at 214-942-1966or email info@thehouseofmacgregor.com if you have any questions we can answer.  Our goal is to make you feel comfortable yet fabulous in Kentucky!

January at the Hat Shop: Inspiration Month

January at the hat shop is when we re-group and brainstorm for the season ahead.  This consists of lots of excursions out of the studio searching for hat inspirations, color palates, and seeing what other creative people are up too.  Thus far coffee with creatives and an excursion to see the amazing Mary Katrantzou exhibit at the Dallas Contemporary Museum have been highlights.  Plus, sticking our heads into FortyFiveTen and Traffic at the Joule to see what clothes are coming into spring.    We do have plenty of fall/winter hats in the studio and will be switching over to straw at the end of March.  Our hours are Tuesday-Friday 10-2:30 and Saturday’s 12-5.  Come see us above Bolsa!
