Emily Moe has been a milliner and haberdasher for close to ten years. She learned her trade by apprenticing under Master Milliner Eva May in Chicago. She is captain of the Milliners of Etsy, a global group of over 300 milliners. She has been active in a dizzying number of artistic projects from knitting to radio drama, tango to bead embroidery and has been a piano teacher for 18 years. She loves hat-making because she can use all of her experience with other media in her hats. She believes that what one wears is a person's purest form of artistic expression and that it is good to be comfortable in both stilettos and Carhartts, but probably not at the same time. She and her husband Adam, an embroidery artist, are the driving forces behind Moe Sew Co -- Fine millinery and hand-embroidery for the discriminating weirdo. They have shown their work together at craft fairs in Minneapolis, Chicago and Nashville. Emily's Moe Sew Co millinery division maintains an Etsy storefront at MoeSewCoMillinery.etsy.com.
