Hat decorating workshop slated for Pottsgrove Manor


Create a new fashionable star of your period wardrobe with a covered hat at Pottsgrove Manor’s Women’s Hat Decorating Workshop, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18.

Straw hats were often covered with silk and then stylishly trimmed with ribbons in the 18th century. Lynnette Miller, owner of Miller’s Millinery, will provide hats and materials and teach all the needed skills to decorate and style a woman’s hat.

With pieces of silk, cotton, ribbons and bows, a plain straw hat will be transformed into a luxurious accessory. Participants will leave the workshop with new skills and a fashionable hat to top off their wardrobe.

Space is limited. The materials fee is $65 per person. Ages 10 and older and all sewing levels are welcome to register for this workshop.

Registration information can be found on Pottsgrove Manor’s website,
