My name is Sally Faith Steinmann, and I am the owner and designer of MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS® Custom Millinery for Women featuring ladies’ fancy hats for the Kentucky Derby, Royal Ascot, weddings, teas, and garden parties.
At MAGGIE MAE DESIGNS®, the business is personal. All of my hats are handcrafted individually by me out of fine fabrics such as dupioni silk, taffeta and silk organza and are sized to fit you well. Custom design is my specialty, and I always welcome creative ideas for new designs!
I am also passionate about horse welfare. In particular, I support those who are trying to improve the lives of Thoroughbred racehorses while they are still racing and provide aftercare for them when they retire. In the fall of 2009 I created an innovative Derby hat auction series called “Hats Off to the Horses: The Road to the Derby”, that runs for 6 months each year and supports the retired racehorses of Old Friends in Kentucky. We are in the middle of our 7th year of “Hats Off” and this unique fundraiser has raised over $26,000 in funds for Old Friends and at the same time helped to increase public awareness of the special needs of retired racehorses.
