If anyone knows what's "hat-pin ing" around Charleston, it's The Hat Ladies

The Hat Ladies activities are a simply mahvelous combination of regularly scheduled events that occur each month, events we support around town, and events created just for us. The key word for all of them is "choice;" The Ladies choose those that fit their interest, schedule, and pocket book.  Everyone comes out a-head in a Hat Ladies Hat-pin ing because Ladies are having FUN while doing something MEANINGFUL.

 Most of all, by simply dusting off their hats and having fun wearing them, Ladies are creating their own "hat-pin ing" and reaffirming: Hats are wear it's (h)at!

Ladies who love hats who come to Charleston are welcome to join us at our HaT-pin-ings, if arrangements are made ahead of time.
