Announcement   My creations have found homes in the USA, Canada, Italy, Ireland, Spain and Australia. Anne is an artist with yarns, seashells and pieces of Mother Nature from Colorado canyons. All of her creations are works of creative art. My daughter, Nikki, has joined my shop and makes the tiny cross body purses and key fobs.


HATS BY ANNE 1942 (Unique Crochet Hats, Scarves, Cowls and Headbands)

These are hats that don't hurt your head or mess up your hair and are made by "AN ARTIST WITH YARN" from Erie, Colorado, who invites you to her world of creative yarns. Being Bohemian by nature, I have chosen to make very unique hats and scarves that add both glamour and an element of surprise to whomever wears my creations. My original handmade hats, scarves, wraps and headbands are created by only the artist. There are no patterns or directions here, just one-of-a-kind products created with lots of love and artistic ability. I was totally surprised after the first and second and third hat and for everything thereafter, it's just plain joy with everything I make. My discovery of the talent came after retiring from a 31-year teaching career. I've been given a remarkable talent that appeared at age 65 and it's still going. " An Artist with Yarn" has been and is at work here. We are all promised certain gifts from God...don't stop looking for yours.

All of the yarn products are easy maintenance. Suggested care: Gentle hand wash or use delicate cycle with cold water. Hats or scarves should be washed alone. Lay flat for drying. Do not dry clean unless specifically suggested. Always treat your beautiful creation with gentle love.

Also, I have a line of hats for chemo patients. Because crochet is such a forgiving creative product, crochet hats do not fit with the exact precision as do hats of different fabric. It isn't necessary to be exact in measurement. Expansion and contraction are the secrets to great crochet. Crochet hats are the most comfortable and well fitting hats made. You will be very pleased with how wonderful the hat fits and you can make it into your own personal "style of wearing".

Happy customers report their hat is the best quality, best style and most comfortable hat they've ever owned.


CROSSES FROM THE SEA (Sculptured Seashell Crosses)

CROSSES FROM THE SEA are sculptured from seashells that I collected during the years that we lived on the beach in Orange Beach, AL.
These one-of-a-kind Crosses are as different as they are lovely. In fact, they are God’s creation, only assembled by the artist.
THE CROSSES ARE AS BEAUTIFUL AS FINE CHINA.
CROSSES FROM THE SEA ARE NOT FOR OUTDOOR USE.

Anne scoured the beach for shell fragments, broken pieces that represent a former life. Once a part of her collection, her creative magic restores these random pieces to new life as parts of beautiful Crosses that symbolize our own recreation. What was broken now is made whole. What were fragments of a former life now are parts of a new creation that represents something even greater than the first life.
These, one-of-a-kind crosses, are as different as they are lovely. In fact, they are God’s creation, only assembled by the artist. They resemble fine china!


COLORADO CANYON CREATIONS (Tiny Zen Rock Sculptures)

COLORADO CANYON CREATIONS are tiny sculptures that are created from Mother Nature items and broken mountain glass that my grandson and I find on our hikes in the canyons of Colorado. Our creations are designed to delight those of you who have visited our beautiful state and need a reminder of its grandeur. These creations are a perfect item for your desk or table. They represent Colorado well.


TINY CROSS BODY PURSES (Cell Phone or Rosary Bags)
My daughter, Nikki, has joined my Etsy shop with her own special designs of cross body cell phone bags and key fobs. Her work is high quality and she only uses the latest in designer cotton fabrics.

Our homes are smoke free.

Wow! This is awesome. The strap has such a perfect width that nothing jiggles around or needs constant adjusting. My phone is 3" x 6" and slips in and out perfectly. The stitching and design perfect! Love everything about it and have my eyes on another one for a special occasion. Also, I want people to know when you communicate with Anne Quinn you'll feel like you've come re-met the way people are meant to be with each other. This matters to all of us more than we realize in our tough world. Must mention again, this holder is beautifully made and I forget I have it on... I wish all bags were this way ;) ~ Elizabeth

About

Retired from Thirty One Years of Teaching and Found my Hidden Talents

HATSBYANNE1942
After my retirement, I discovered a hidden talent...crochet with no patterns. My hats, scarves and headbands are all made with God given talent that I never knew existed until I was 65 years old. My creations are made with quality and love...each is given its own name. There are no duplications and each is numbered one of one. My love for winter hats came from living so many years in the winters of Colorado. After a few years on the beach, my husband (of 55 years) and I have have moved back home. We have just moved back to Colorado and are in our new home in Erie, Colorado. I'm back in the winter hat business and loving creating these beautiful hats and scarves. I hope you will visit my Etsy shop and enjoy viewing over 200 of the beautiful hats, scarves and headbands.

CROSSES FROM THE SEA
We move into our beach condo in 2013 and after living there for several months, I felt the call to sculpture Crosses From The Sea. Each day, I visited the beach and picked up pieces of broken seashells. I was looking for pieces no one else would want. Then, with the pieces that I found, I create these lovely "one of a kind" Crosses. It just makes me think about putting pieces of a broken life together into something beautiful that glorifies God. Each cross has a natural hole in a seashell that is used as the wall hanger, but each is also ready to place on a table or desk for all to pick up and enjoy. Each Cross is unique and quality handmade. You will never find another Cross like the one you purchase. There are no molds nor forms, just God given talent for sculpturing these amazing Crosses. Each Cross is a keepsake much like a very find piece of china. I brought crates of seashells with me to Colorado and continue to create these beautiful pieces of art. Only recently, I have begun to sculpture some of my Crosses on to pieces of old barn wood. These, too, are unique and very beautiful.

COLORADO CANYON CREATIONS came about after my grandson and I hiked the canyons and found that we should create tiny sculptures that are a reminder of the beauty of this fabulous state. We collect tiny pieces of Mother Nature and help her with the clean up by picking up pieces of broken mountain glass. Our creative sculptures are unique and one of a kind. If you have visited Colorado, you'll enjoy one of these creations as a reminder of how God has blessed this area of His world.
