An English Country Garden jets off to Nebraska!

by Margaret Woodliff | April 23, 2017 | 0 Comments

"An English Country Garden" returned to Alnwick from MIMC in Melbourne in mid March to be feted on the catwalk at The Duchess High School fashion show. The show was in aid of HospiceCare Northumberland.

As soon as it was off the catwalk I boxed it up and it has now put in a few more hat miles, jetting over to Nebraska, USA. An English Country Garden will be on show there at Margie Trembley's Chapeaux Emporium in Springwood along with other headpieces by nine international milliners until June.

Here are a few more detailed images of the piece inspired by my Northumberland garden last summer, which utilized the (same) varied assortment of millinery materials sent to all nine milliners by Margie, late last summer.

Smart Works - The George Hotel, Edinburgh, May 20th

by Margaret Woodliff | May 13, 2016 | 0 Comments

Delighted to have been asked to show my latest millinery collections at The George Hotel on Friday May 20th, in support of Smart Works, a charity that offers out-of-work women from all walks of life a way back into the career world. 
At yesterday's showing at Doxford Hall in support of HospiceCare, Northumberland, I was very pleased with the very enthusiastic reaction to my collections; so I am excited now to be planning another event when my newest pieces, made a couple of weeks ago in Alan Toulouse, at a week long Masterclass with Carole Maher from Sydney, will be on show. 
The Smart Work's tea looks lovely!
