The Milliner's Sale

Nicky, from Crofton Park clothes shop The White Room, writes:

On Thursday, April 25th at 7pm, we are hosting a 'Hat Chat' and book signing with local Milliner & journalist, Mary Jane Baxter.  The event will be an 'evening social' where people can book their place to come and join us for a glass of wine and listen to MJ discuss her work as a Vintage style, couture hat maker.

Mary Jane's hat workshops currently sell out at the Victoria & Albert Museum and Liberty's store in Regent Street and she regularly features in magazines such as Homes & Antiques.

We will be passing round and trying on MJ's hats and will also be able to buy signed copies of her new book 'The Modern Girls Guide to Hat Making'. We are charging just £5 for this event as we hope people will come along and enjoy the informal, fun atmosphere we promote.

Following this event we will be running a one day Hat Making course with Mary Jane on Sunday 19th May when people will be able to make their own 'Downton Abbey' style Cloche Hat to fit.
