Trish Raine in Fall 2019…

Hi All, I am sorry to have not written this post sooner, to let you know when and where I'll be selling my hats this season!  Somehow, like most of us it seems, summer disappeared and September zoomed by at a mad pace.  So, here we are on the eve of October as my mind [...]

Launch of Gossamer Felt line of hats – Fredericton and Rothesay, Nov 3-4th 2018

I am thrilled to finally debut a line of hats I've been working on since Spring.  The Gossamer Hat. I have a customer with alopecia, who wears my hats year-round.  We had been in touch planning her next hat, but with the onset of the heat and humidity all I could think about was how [...]

“Does Opera Kill?”, Australiana Theme

The 2016 MMU (Millinery Meet-up) hosted a hat competition that had about 60 participants.  It was sponsored by Hat Blocks Australia, and yes, they did in fact show up with hat blocks all the way from Australia to the MMU marketplace!  Since they sponsored the competition, the theme of the hat competition was Australiana.  What is your impression of [...]

Millinery Meet-up 2016

I'm remiss in not writing this blog in the fall.  After attending the Millinery Meet-up, in Gatlinburg, TN, my life included visitors, holidays, and more travel.  With a show at CraftBoston in December, let's just say this blog got left behind in the dust... I would like to resolve in 2017 to pick up my [...]

…And here’s the truth!

I've been bad at keeping this blog up to date.  Apologies! Summer has been quite incredible.  I've not taken holiday since Spring, instead opting for staying local, working hard as an Occupational Therapist, and hatting in between. Truth be known, in the dog days of summer, felting isn't the best activity.  It takes a lot [...]

Spectrum 2016 – A New Brunswick Craft Council Exhibition

Each Christmas season and into the new year, I spend about a month thinking about what I'd like to accomplish during the year, be it new skills, or direction in selling my wares.  This year was no different, thinking about shows in 2016 and the inventory I'll need to produce for said shows, down to [...]

Happy New Year!

In fact, it should be Happy Last-Day-of-2015"!!! This has been a fabulous month of felting, sales, getting the website online (no small feat), and then having family visit for the last few weeks.  I have taken this week off work (as an occupational therapist), and have relaxed into the holidays.  This means letting the left [...]

What a week!!

It has been a whirlwind for sure.  This time of year is typically pretty busy with Christmas parties and trying to fit in shopping, cleaning, and! I was extremely fortunate this week to be called by the CBC for an interview in their afternoon segment.  I raced up to their office so that we [...]

NSDCC Christmas Show, Halifax, Nova Scotia

Tis the night before Hali, and I'm quite calm at the moment. I wanted to write about my "process" when it comes to preparing for a show.  I take my hat off to those who do shows all the time, shipping their booths from venue to venue, the organization, time and energy that must take. [...]

Photo Shoots

  It is early November and I'm squeezing in a shoot before the shows in two weeks and a month's time. This is when I call on my "team".  These are friends who model, my ridiculously supportive neighbor Susan and her home, and her partner Jack, my photographer.  Typically here's how it happens: We set a [...]
