Profile Information

I Love Hats Because?
They are a stylish addition to an outfit, be it for an event or wearing casually.
They provide shade from the sun, and
wearing my own creations visibly show a creative extension of my personality.
About Me
I loved textiles & design as a school student and loved sewing with my mother(deseased) in rural NSW.
In recent years my energy & focus were on my career in healthcare. I now have a more balanced life and have a rapidly growing interest in millinery. I am learning to express myself creatively through millinery.
