About Sue Wood
Sue’s reason for setting up in business was simple; she fell in love with millinery.
‘I have a smaller than average head and struggled to find a hat to fit me for my daughter’s wedding. I have always been creative and began to experiment to improve the fit. I enrolled on a millinery course with Rose Cory (the late Queen Mother’s Milliner) and after 3 days I was hooked, following on with a 10 week course at Liverpool Community College before embarking on HNC course at Leeds College of Art, Graduating in 2013 with Distinction and Higher Distinctions’
