An excerpt: "Trimming, in millinery parlance, is the adornment applied to a hat to give it a finished effect, and the one who does this work is know as a trimmer... an understanding of design, an artistic sense, and a proficient needle are necessary for the final achievement - a correct hat. But, while it is true that many of the best trimmers are born, not made, one may be gifted and not be aware of it until one gives the work a fair trial. Much can be accomplished through study and practice."
