Millinery Meet-Up, the United States’ biennial education and networking event, was held Oct.1-5, at the historic arts & crafts school Arrowmont, in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.  Over 100 participants and instructors, from around the world, enjoyed numerous events throughout the week—Instructor Panel, Social Media/Marketing seminar, Hat Contest, and a closing Decades of Decadence party to end the week.  Instructors included:  Edwina Ibbotson (UK),  Jane Stoddard (Australia), Biliana Borisova (Spain), Rose Hudson (Australia), Laura Whitlock (USA), Eugenie van Oirschott (Netherlands) and Wayne Whitlock (USA) and Lina Stein (Ireland).  Class offerings included working with esparterie, crin, textile paints, making a poupee, leather, lace and many other topics, and were well-received by the attendees.  MMU is held every other year and can be followed on Facebook.

Such a wonderful learning opportunity with incredible instructors and fellow milliners. I am so glad that I have been able to attend both 2014 and 2016...I'm eagerly awaiting 2018!
