"The Fancy Hat Literary Luncheon 2010-2011 at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, FL was another success this year!! And so was HAT-A-TUDE! Everyone simply loved our hats! Your website does not do your hats justice. They are much more beautiful and "detailed" in person. I can hardly wait to order my next HAT-A-TUDE hat! On your website you gave some excellent advice for this spectacular hat..."keep the dress simple wear this hat and a "fabulous" shoe." (PS/ check out Jennie's shoes in pictures ! Wow!)

I was invested by Queen Elisabeth of England with an honour called an MBE (see it after my name). It means Member of the British Empire and the award was conferred for services to the Ministry of Defense and the community. I was awarded the MBE in the Queen's New Years Honours 2004 and the Investiture was at Buckingham Palace on 7 Jul 04. Whilst waiting for the ceremony to begin, I was in the Royal Picture gallery with the other recipients and received many comments and compliments on my lovely hat - I told them it was specially created for me by an American artisan of the first water! They were very impressed! (Rightly so!)...

My wife's brother's wedding was in Saint Loup sur Thouet, one of the very famous castles in France, very beautiful, and the hat was very chic in the middle of all the other ones. Everybody was jealous, asking my wife "where did you get that hat?" You offered great service, you fought to have the hat ready on time despite the fact we live in Europe, thank you so much ! We are are so happy!- Fabrice & Anne, France
The wedding was beautiful in Derbyshire, England. Your hat was much admired and I really enjoyed wearing it on my daughter's special day. (note:she ordered hat while working in Eygpt!)
- Thanks again, Kathleen
I wanted to give you a sample of how great your hat looked. I truly felt like a beautiful bride. Thanks for being so involved. You're one in a million!
Just wanted to send you a pic of your fabulous hat in action again. Everyone loved the hat of course! This was taken at the Smithsonian Young Benefactor's Polo Cup. And yes that is John Walsh of America's Most wanted!

Kathi - WOW WOW WOW. After many, many years of attending the Kentucky Derby, with a different hat each year, I have to say that this was the BEST hat EVER. (picture attached) Your work is top notch and your customer service is above and beyond. I hope all of your customers appreciate you as much as I do. Thanks for all of your help and expertise - I'll connect with you again next year for sure!
I just got my hat and I LOVE IT!!! I have it on as I write and I'm constantly jumping up to go look in the mirror. Both quality and workmanship exceeded my expectations. Your work is beautiful! Thank you so much, and thank you too for the terry hat "sizer" you sent. It turns out that I needed it even with the XS hat. Now the fit is perfect. I love this hat so much I plan to dress up just to go to the grocery store so I can show it off right away! And I can't wait for Sunday to wear it to church. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I LOVE my hats and wear them all the time - people just love them and one lady even asked could she race me to the end of the street for my Red Gambler!!! Most people comment that HATS are just beautiful but they do not look good in them - my reply is EVERYONE looks good in a hat!!! I wish everyone would order from you!!!
My hat has arrived!!! It is drop-dead gorgeous! I have seen how delightful a hat makes you feel. No wonder women felt so dressed up when they wore hats. I have always had a Red Hat Mama attitude, so I thought it was about time I found a red hat. I shall not go quietly into old age!
Happy New Year! The week before Christmas I had lunch with friends at the Red Fox Inn in Middleburg, VA. I wore my fabulous brown Gambler with the feather spray and was the recipient of many oohs and ahhs. Every time I wear the red Gambler with black ribbons and feathers people come up to me and remark how good I look...remember the green Fedora I bought the same day as the red Gambler? A lady threatened to grab it off my head if I didn't "hand-it-over". Well, I won that battle. Tell the ladies that if they want a quick pick-me-up, or an "instant" make-over to PUT ON A HAT!

Thanks Kathi, It is fabulous and was a huge hit at the wedding and is so versatile that I can wear it with damn near anything! I have been spreading the word about you, I am an actress and my husband is a Hollywood movie designer, so we know a lot of "hat" people!! Thanks again for making me look so glamorous.
