Long Braid Commissioned By Milliner


June 29, 2015.  Louisville milliner Jenny Pfanenstiel (http://www.formeonlineshop.com/) ordered a 48-inch, 8-ply square braid from me for a Western hat she’s making for one of her clients.  Jenny has made hats for Oprah and Michelle Obama so I was very surprised and honored that she placed an order from me!  Her order was just the incentive I needed to master the art of adding horse hair to a lengthen a braid longer than the original hair length.  I was introduced to the skill a year ago, but kept putting off practicing because it was so overwhelming and I only had two hands, not the 4-6 I felt that I needed.  But, after a fair amount of practice, I finally “got” it.  (The J is for our first names, Jenny and Janet.)
