How Do I Buy Hat Blocks?

How do I buy Hat Blocks?

You can buy hat blocks directly through my online shop, or alternatively by using one of the following methods, which are outlined below:

Email with the following:

1. Style Number(s) of the Hat Block(s) that you require
2. Your Address including postcode
3. We will reply as soon as possible with a quote, including P+P
4. Make the payment (see below)
5. Orders will be processed as soon as payment has been received.

If you need to discuss the block or need a particular size, please call 0876274259.

Discount: There is a 10% discount for Millinery students who attend my classes.

How much does P+P cost?

When you buy hat blocks, all are sent by Parcel Post. This means that they will have a Tracking Number in case your parcel does not arrive when expected. If you are not at home when your hat blocks arrives a note will be left for you, requesting that you collect from the post office.

For 1 small block = €10 (Standard Parcel Delivery): Styles 1, 2, 2a, 3, 5, 6a, 6b, 14, Stand

For 2+ small blocks = €15 (Standard Parcel Delivery)

For 1 large block = €10 (Standard Parcel Delivery)

****Currently postage is offered at a flat rate of €6.50 up to 10kg (Until end 2020)*****

Can I buy hat blocks if I live outside Ireland? Do you ship Hat Blocks abroad?

Yes we have been sending Hat Blocks to The USA, Australia, Spain, The Netherlands, Canada, and the UK for the past few years. If it is a large consignment I will send them by courier. Although it is more reasonable to send them by courier they usually request that and extra €25 is paid to insure a large package. Please let me know what you would like to order and I will advise the best carrier and price.

When should I expect delivery of my hat blocks?

This is an online service only and it is not possible to collect Hat blocks unless you are a student attending a class/workshop.

Your order will be processed when payment has been received. Please allow 1 week to 10 days for your order to be completed, as everything is handmade to order by Padraig in his workshop.

When your order has been sent we will email you details on: How to care for your Hat Block and Combining Hat Blocks (So that you may get the most use and value from your blocks)
