Hat exhibit

Museum of Early Trades & Crafts, 9 Main Street, Madison
The Milliner’s Tale: The Craft of Hat Making (Exhibit)
Through June 2016
The Milliner’s Tale examines the millinery trade from the 18th-20th century perspective of the milliner as a craftsperson. The millinery trade, along with dressmaking and other sewing industries, provided women with an acceptable occupation at a time when few women worked outside the home.
The hats featured in this exhibit are only a few examples of the hats made and worn during earlier times. We have also included select modern pieces created by 21st century milliners – evidence that millinery is a craft still very much alive.
