A few years ago now, there was a program here in the Gosford CBD, called Create Innovate Gosford. This program was instituted to encourage creative businesses to locate themselves in our gorgeous city. One of these amazing businesses was Jean Marie Millinery, with the beautiful Jean Marie Visser as the ingenious entrepreneur at the helm.

Several years later, Jean Marie is a much sought-after milliner, creating beautiful bespoke hats and headwear, along with handcrafted sunhats and accessories. Jean Marie uses only the highest quality fabrics and materials in her creations and is meticulous with her craft.

She has been absolutely snowed under in the past few weeks, preparing for the Mountain Magic Festival in the Blue Mountains. This is a very exclusive festival, and Jean was honoured to have been chosen as a stall holder there.

Jean Marie not only makes gorgeous hats, but is very happy to impart her knowledge to others, and is hoping to begin holding workshops in her amazing art deco shop, at 109A Donnison Street, Gosford. Make sure you follow her on Facebook,at Jean Marie Millinery, and head down to see her if you are looking for headwear for the upcoming racing season, or a special event!
