I was able to join a class in Millinery taught by Kate Pernia at Houston’s Community College. It was a beginning class. I had been making hats for theatrical productions for years but had never had any lessons. Kate was a delightful and patient instructor and managed in an all too brief course to improve my millinery skills by 100 % at least.
