                    FOREWORD 
N compiling the following book, the author has in her mind, not 
    only the teaching of a handicraft, but the hope of presenting 
her subject in such a form as may stimulate thought, ingenuity, 
and originality. 
   Millinery suffers perhaps more than most subjects from its 
transitoriness, but with the foundation work carefully and fully 
described, it is believed that the serious student will be able to 
apply this knowledge to the new ideas which must continually 
occur. Should this hope be fulfilled the author has achieved her 
object of raising Millinery from a mere craft to an educational 
subject. 
                                 BLANCHE STREATHER
