No, I've been wearing...and making...hats for many years. I do understand why some people are intimidated by hats though...they make us stand out and sometimes we don't feel like we look good in them. That's one of the reasons I started this group...I want people to discover how fun hats can be by creating events that make it easier for them to put a hat on their head! And I hope to educate people about hat-wearing...to help them discover what styles are complementary to their head shape and their unique personality and how to wear a particular hat or coordinate it with their other attire.
I love all hats...little wearable sculptures...but for myself I tend not to wear really, really big hats with lots of stuff on them. I like more elegant, classy designs...fedoras, berets and lovely little perching hats.
I am a happy hat-maker and own a business called "Fat Cat Hats and Sacks". I'm fond of vintage things and am often found hunting for treasures at thrift stores. I love animals of all kinds...and am a collector of cats.
I'm looking forward to our next meetup...touring Distillery Row was suggested...what do you think?
