At The British Millinery
Association, we aim to share…


We love hats of all descriptions and want to share this excitement with like-minded millinery lovers.


Keeping Millinery Alive by preserving traditional millinery skills to embracing modern innovations and everything in between.


Inclusive & Welcoming. Hat makers, teachers, wearers, and promoters. Hobbyists to business owners, newbies to old hands.


It takes more than creativity to run a successful business – marketing, sales, social media and more. We help with the creative stuff too.


Community First. Inclusion is key, if you love hats as much as we do, you are always welcome. Here it’s community over competition.

So who are we?

We’re a group of professional milliners and makers passionate about what we do. We’re here to foster an inclusive, vibrant place of sharing and learning within our dedicated community.

Working alone as so many of us do can be lonely and isolating. It’s so much better to be part of a connected “family” with a shared interest.
