''In 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.''
