Julie Taylor, aka Moaning Minnie, has a deft touch with linen to execute a sophisticated and yet simply rackish scarf that speaks to its origins of the hills, valleys and crags of Yorkshire. This scarf would make me a better man, if only I had that potential.
Hats off to my family.....
I grew up hanging from my mum's apron strings, watching her create the most wonderful things, armed with just fabric, a sharp pair of scissors and an old electric sewing machine. It is no wonder that 35 years on my children hang from my apron strings watching me create the most wonderful things armed with just fabric, a sharp pair of scissors and an electric sewing machine. She taught me everything I know about sewing. I took it a step further by creating my own designs and teaching myself to make patterns through common sense and lots of trial and error.
The difference is that I turned my love of creating into my job and my family help me do just this. My life partner does my accounts and models the flat caps. My eldest son also models my creations. Son number 2 models and takes photos. Son number 3 helps me pack up orders and takes parcels to the post office. He is also the provider of many cups of tea. Son number 4 helps by drawing all over my book of designs, but he is allowed he is only 4 years old.
After my fourth son was born I knew the time had come to make my dream come true to run my own business selling items that I had created. I have run my own business before so I just needed to find a product. I have always been a big fan of hats but could never find a hat that fit so had to make my own and at that point I realised that there must be many other people with the same problem. I loved making my hats so it made perfect sense to make this my business, to offer hats in different sizes. It has been really hard work but totally worth it, I love it!
