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 bring Ladies and our community together.  The friendships and self-esteem pulled out of our hats is powerful and meaningful to all of us. COVID 19 led to the cancellation of major Charleston events that we have supported through our volunteerism for YEARS.

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

Hat-pin-ings 2021

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

Hat-pin-ings 2020
