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."

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.
