An excerpt: I have written this series of job sheets, How to Make Hats, in an effort to simplify the teaching of millinery in day and evening schools, and to help teachers, students, and home milliners to follow trade standards. The Book has been divided into ten units, totaling seventy jobs. Each unit consists of a group of closely related jobs which constitute a definite division of millinery...A job , as used in this text, is the sum total of a definite group of operations needed to complete a particular problem in millinery. Specific directions for performing each operation are given...
