If anyone knows what's "hat-pin ing" around Charleston, it's The Hat Ladies.  Thus our Calendar is typically filled with hat wearing opportunities that unite Ladies with one another and connect us to our community.  The friendships and self-esteem we pull out of our hats is powerful, while our outreach is meaningful to everyone and everything we touch.

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


This year will see a resumption of our mix of creative and traditional Hat Ladies hat-pin-ings and support for non profit causes in our Community.  Adjustments will continue to be made, reflecting changes caused by COVID. Those currently listed below will most likely be expanded as we continue to settle into this "new normal."


Off to a slow start, partly due to John's second hip surgery (hip, hip HORRAY; he behaved this time around). But also because January typically IS a let down from the Holidays.  It also didn't help tHAT The African American Museum changed its January opening to the summer; we planned to be there. I can't let this month go by without SOMETHING hat-pin-ing.

Tuesday 31: So let's try out the concept of Brunch on the one day left to the month.  Here's the plan:  The Palmetto Cafe (at Charleston Place); 9:30-11:30ish. Order off the menu.  RSVP to me by the day prior.


TBD: The Ruth Mazyck Hat Shop at Hope Lodge named in her honor/memory will take place mid February.  A casual Luncheon will follow.


Friday 17: The Hat Ladies continue our tradition of marching in The Rotary Club's St. Patricks Day Parade; gather at 9:00; Lunch at Tommy Condon's afterwards.


Saturday 8: Easter Saturday will, once again, begin with The Hat Ladies' informal Promenade at 11:00 and end at High Cotton for our traditional  Holiday Luncheon at noon.


TBD:  A Mother's/Friendship Day gathering

Hat-pin-ings 2021

We were off to a slow start, as Charleston (and the rest of the world) started recovering from COVID.

Hat-pin-ings 2020 

This year COVID effectively canceled all community activities in which The Hat Ladies would have participated.  There were, however, some clever events we managed to pull out of our hats.  Click on the icon to see what they were.
