''A lady once said, ''To see a velvet hat, its perfect binding, its artistic folds, its smooth surfaces and delicate curves, with never a stitch showing, nor a hint of its supporting structure, fills me with awe, as in the presence of a ''mystery...But be it remembered that what has been done by one human being, in all ordinary cases, can be accomplished by another, with persistence and care.''
