General Membership Meeting, Speaker, & Lunch

Date: 1/3/2022

Time: 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Linda Starr, who has loved hats since she was 19 and has a hat collection spanning more than 140 years, will speak to us January 3rd on "Arizona Women Who Might Have Worn My Hats." She has more than 200 hats, found in antique stores, estate shows, and garage sales,  and from friends who gave her their grandmothers' beloved hats. Her collection took off in the 1990s when she started doing vintage fashion shows in Scottsdale for the Scottsdale Historical Society as a fund raiser. They had beautiful clothes but no hats and no accessories, so Linda started searching for them. Linda, who resides in Sedona but spent many years in Paradise Valley, has given programs at the Arizona Costume Institute of the Phoenix Art Museum, the Questers,  the Butterfly Museum,  and many others.  She is a life member of the Sedona Historical Society and Scottsdale Historical Society, and member of the Sedona Questers and Palatki Questers.

The General Business Meeting starts at 10:00 AM; Linda Starr follows at 11:00 AM with lunch at noon. Purchase your box lunch by 5:00 PM on Thursday, December 30th online. Or reserve your place with Mary McMahon and pay by check or cash in person. Members with reservations are responsible for payment even if unable to attend.
