If anyone knows what's "hat-pin ing" around Charleston, it's The Hat Ladies.  Thus our Calendar is filled with hat wearing opportunities that bring Ladies together.  The friendships and self-esteem pulled out of our hats is powerful and meaningful.

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