Sarah Sentinella of Cappellino Millinery gave us a very interesting talk and demonstration on how she makes beautiful hats for occasions, showing us several examples, also described methods of shaping hats on blocks. Hats are made mainly now from Shiminay (product of banana tree) and straw. She learnt her trade at Hereford College and makes her hats in her spare time when she is not working. Members modelled the hats very professionally!
