Hi, welcome to my hatters blog.
As a passionate hat maker of 30 years, I am recently returned to  Australia from a global research trip looking at historic and contemporary headwear. Fortunate to receive a Winston Churchill fellowship, I explored headwear design in Japan, Europe, UK and USA.

I visited museum collections, hat manufacturers, hat designers, retailers and fashion expositions, meeting many passionate hat wearers and hat makers along the way.

Now happily home in sunny Sydney, I have created this blog to foster a dialogue between  those who share my enthusiasm for headwear.We will discuss hat styles and how they suit different face shapes, fibres, sartorial trends, manufacturing, headwear in the media and what is currently being created on  hatters benches. Guest contributors will elaborate on  particular  topics  and I  invite your participation and comments.

    Welcome to the blogosphere, Rosie. Next I’ll be trying to “influence you”, as they say at work, to come to Twitter, too.
