The Ballard Millinery Studio is the design studio for five Seattle milliners.

Carol Campbell - Michale Crooks - Jane Leeds - Belle McCluskey - Wayne Wichern

Modern millinery is a craft both traditional and experimental. Across the country and around the globe, highly-skilled communities of hat makers are creating sculptural art by combining centuries-old techniques with new materials and modern design trends. We are five hat makers who share the Ballard Millinery Studio. We are part of a robust group of Seattle area milliners and hat makers.


Hours by appointment - Please email or call us for an appointment to view our ready to wear hats in our showroom or to have a hat made for your particular needs. We are frequently working in the studio but it is best to contact one of us in advance. We look forward to working with you.


Please email to be added to our Mailing List for upcoming hat & fashion events and hat making classes & workshops.


National Hat Day - January 15th, 2020

National Hat Day is an unofficial holiday which falls annually on January 15th. It celebrates one of the oldest human accessories. Hats have been worn all throughout history for a variety of different purposes: to indicate social status or branch of military service; to indicate the wearer has a position of authority; for religious purposes or to denote nationality; for ceremonial or fashion purposes; or to protect the wearer from sun, rain or other hazards.
