Birth of the Scrub Hat Store!
I started making scrub hats for one of my sons, a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist…CRNA. He likes to wear distinctive scrub hats to put his patients at ease and start a converstation. The velcro closure idea was his. He did not like messing with the ties of the traditional scrub hat or the way they fit. This is why he likes the velcro closure, “ Velcro provides a precise comfortable fit that does not loosen while wearing like a draw string or tied hat. Hats with strings also have a tendency to break or to get caught in the agitators of washing machines. ” Guess he does not know about mesh laundry bags!! He loves the ease of getting a good, comfortable fit that lasts with…

How I Started to Sew!
I did not know how to sew until my husband was transferred to a rural area in Utah. One of my neighbors was starting a star quilt making class. My dear husband, knowing I was bored, told them I would be there. I could hardly sew a button on! How could I back out? I did have a sewing machine gathering dust, thanks to my mother-in-law. Well, no one there would believe I did not know the first thing about sewing. It did not take them long to figure that out! My first questions were: how do you thread this machine, sew a straight line and what is a quarter inch seam? With much patience, Pearl taught me everything I needed to know and a quilter was born. I was then persuaded to make water ski costumes for the Aberdeen Aqua Addicts Water Ski Team that my sons are a part of. What a challenge. I had never made clothing and sewing lycra/spandex is sooo much fun!!!! I have now made the team over 100 costumes. The boys really owe me for that. :) Next came...Mom would you make me some scrub hats?

About Me!
I am originally from South Dakota. I grew up swimming, water skiing, taking care of and showing my Quarter Horses.

My husband was transferred to Lake Havasu City, Arizona in 1992. We enjoy living in Lake Havasu City. I do NOT miss the cold weather and snow. My sons and their families still live in South Dakota. I DO miss not living close to them. I now enjoy sewing, reading, and water activities.

If I am not sewing, I probably have my nose stuck in a book.

Feedback from some of my happy customers:

Well made caps. Not too "deep" like a lot of men's scrub caps, which require them to be rolled up. These fit great as is. Great customer service as well. My husband is very picky about his scrubs. This is the only place I will be purchasing his caps from now on. Thanks for a good product.

Hi from Oz
I can see why your son loves this style of hat. I am an anaesthetic nurse in country NSW and will be the first with this style. Needless to say it fits perfectly. Thank you for your attention to detail.
Cheers
