Raising Our Hats To The Autumn!

Well it's time to well and truly wave good by to the Summer and raise our hats to the Autumn, with a crispness to the air and browning leaves starting to fall!

It's been a busy Summer here at Sara Gadd Millinery, so busy in fact that this is the first blog for 8 months!

My Summer ended with a much anticipated trip to Cyprus for a friend's wedding, a lovely time was had by all and the bride looked stunning!  Congratulations Stuart & Katie Holden!  The Bride and Bridesmaids wore Sara Gadd Millinery.
Returning home to rain and a cold chill hasn't been quite so dull though.  It's been a busy week with a photo shoot at Crosby Lodge, a beautiful setting, stunning models, cheeky hats, wonderful photographer and champagne.  Wonderful stat to the week!  Check out the venue at and view a preview of the images at

It was then time again to sew, preparing for a Charity fashion show on Thursday, organised by Susan Dowes of Genevieve.  The event took place at The Shepherd's Inn in Carlisle, with funds going to The Eden Valley Hospice.
Guests were welcomed by Dance Ahead's, 'Alice and Hatter'
Living Statues before being entertained over lunch, with beauty demonstrations from Boyd Hair & Beauty, Carlisle, fall 2010 fashions from Genevieve and Country Dreams Bridal Wear, flower demonstrations from Bloomsberry, Carlisle, singing from Sophie, Sara Gadd Millinery demonstrations, magic from James, a member of the Magic Circle and Elvis!
It was a jam packed lunch date for a worthy cause!

With lots of projects on the horizon in collaboration with Dance Ahead it looks as though the rast of the year's going to continue being busy! 

Keep posted for Hattie Happenings!!!
