THE JO-ANN REGIME

sadly, where would we be without the JO-ANN concern out here in the suburbs?
i will tell you:
in new york city or los angeles where there are amazing fabric stores in high concentration.

that being said, i am thankful for very small mercies.
as i make these hats i think of the "joann content". i'd say the joann content of my hats is about 10%.
unfortunately that also makes the materials content:
10% chinese - the linen headband and brim liner.
1% greman - g├╝termann thread
89% vintage U.S. fabrics.

i'd rather it be 100% vintage U.S. origin, for the sake of quality & aesthetics.
