Testimonials

If you’re new to millinery, as I am, then hiring instead of buying hat blocks gives you the chance to experiment with different styles without the huge expense. Martina has a great selection of hat blocks available for reasonable rates, and has always provided prompt and reliable service. She’s a pleasure to deal with and has also been kind enough to share her millinery techniques when I’ve lacked the necessary know-how.

Martina’s hat blocks are beautiful. She was very flexible and helped me out when I was in a sticky situtation and just didn’t have the correct shape! Her rates are extremely reasonable and I look forward to using her services again.

I was so happy to find Martina’s hire service so I could have such a choice of blocks without the big outlay. Second class recorded post makes it very efficient, secure and affordable. It has opened a huge range of opportunities for me and I’m really grateful!
