Millinery history:

Tammy learnt millinery from undertaking weekend courses with Louise McDonald Milliner in 2001. Since then, Tammy has been making hats for friends and herself to wear to the races, weddings and other special occasions. In 2003, Tammy participated in the first national millinery convention in Adelaide which included masterclasses by leading milliners such as Peter Jago and Mandy Murphy.

In 2006 Tammy began studying millinery at Ultimo TAFE in Sydney, graduating from Certificate III in Millinery/Headwear in 2009 and completing her studies in Certificate IV in June 2010.

In January 2009 Tammy was a delegate to the International Millinery Forum in Wagga Wagga, NSW which included participation in masterclasses led by Jean Carol, Richard Nylon and Eugenie von Orshott.

In 2011, Tammy’s entry ‘Boomerang Dreaming’  in the prestigious international millinery competition run by L’Atelier-Musée du Chapeau in Lyon, France was featured in their exhibition.

Most recently, a number of Tammy’s hats have been featured in the SS2012 racewear collection of legendary Australian fashion designer George Gross.

Both Tammy and her husband Brian enjoy the thrill of horse racing which also provides a wonderful opportunity to wear elegant fashion and most especially, wonderful hats!

Tammy has a collection of wooden hat blocks that can be combined to make at least 15 different hat styles with 3 different hat sizes for you to choose.
