Kentucky Derby Hats - A Tradition


Date: May, 2019


If it's time for the Derby, it's time for hats.  Part of the  Kentucky Derby tradition is for women to wear colorful hats decorated with flowers, bows, ribbons and feathers.  Modeled after high-class European racing events, the tradition was started by founder Col. Meriwether Lewis Clark, Jr.  Our crafting group jumped in on the fun using handy art supplies and imagination to create Derby Hats.  On the big day, they added a tilt of the hat and the Southern Belle attitude, and it was off to the races.
