Kari Dalton's Profile

About

ClaraBelle's Hats came to be when Kari Dalton's youngest daughter got married and everyone loved the gowns and hats that she made. So with the encouragement of friends and family...Kari signed up for the Etsy shop and developed a presence online.
During the wedding sewing and preparation Kari took a small break to buy a hat-block. She was told by the seller that it was from an old millinery factory, part of an inventory believed to be around 100 yrs old. Something that old deserves a name. Kari put her thinkin' cap on, and swears the hat-block came to life for a second and giggled "ClaraBelle" ..so....hence the name.
As for Kari Dalton, she is a self taught milliner, using old millinery course texts. Plus she has sewn for 37 yrs, as well as dabbled in other art forms. For the past 3 -4 yrs Kari has knitted too. Crocheting is something she learned about the time she learned to sew. Kari LOVES that she can combine it all…

Kari's "partner" in creative "crime" is her daughter, Anni. They feed off each others creative energy and have fun bringing ideas to completion. Then if her other daughter joins in...watch out.
The ClaraBelle's Hats shop gives you an idea of how insanely creative they get. ...you just never know what they're going to do next. The shop motto is "A lady should have whatever she fancies, without breaking her bank account."

So y'all come on in, sip a glass of tea, or Jeremiah Weed, and have a good old time.

ClaraBelle's Hats is honored to be a part of the Milliner's of Etsy group.
