Shurie Southcott has been making hats for over ten years. Under the guidance of the late Jill Pfeiffer, her skill and creativity grew with utilizing the technique of “French Room” meaning “Hand Stich” and by paying attention to the details of making her designs with theutmost professionalism.
Shurie is mostly inspired by the late 1920s-1940s Victorian era. With ideas constantly bouncing around in her head, she continues to strive for uniqueness by adding a modern twist to her hat making art.
