I started Millinery in 2013, I was lucky enough to get into a class with Elaine, last minute when another customer pulled out! Since starting in 2013 my Millinery has grown, i have attended forums and classes with selected Australian Milliners and continued learning through lessons on Hat Academy whilst working in the millinery supplies industry and studying.

I have recently become a part of the Hat Academy Team and i hope to help other people realise their dreams like i have.
