Quill Feathers Scissors Black permanent marker Hat elastic Veil Needle and thread Ribbon

Quill feathers: Quill feathers are one of the most versatile feathers in our range. They come in a range of colours and can be stripped, trimmed, curled and shaped to great effect.

Attaching quill feathers: Attach the quill feather to your hat or fascinator with a needle and thread. Place it in the right spot, then push a needle and thread right through the centre of the stem, and sew it to your base – in a figure 8 fashion – through the centre and over to the left, through the centre and over to the right. Then right over your stitching a few times to cover your stitching and neaten the attachment.

Tip: Collections of feathers can be held together at the stem with wrapped cotton thread and a dab of glue, then sewn or glued to your headwear.

Preparing your quill feather: Quill feathers need to be prepared before using as they are rarely perfect. Trim the tip with some very sharp scissors cutting from tip downwards (against the grain) to shape the top. Remove fluff from the bottom of the stem by grasping it firmly and pulling downwards. Remove parts of the body of feather in the same way. Don’t pull too much or you may take out more than you meant to.
