About

In my late twenties I was a struggling glass artist. I was doing small stained glass pieces and etched glass ornaments. I was sharing a booth at a craft fair with a friend who had made a few crocheted beanies. She sold all her hats while I sold nothing. It was then I realized that what I wanted to do was to create something useful. Thus began my hat making career! Living aboard a small boat left me with only having room for knitting hats. I would always have a bag of my hats with me at the local coffee shops and bars. Later I moved ashore where I pulled out my free sewing machine, took apart a newsboy cap from the thrift store and sewed a new one. The first hats were not the best but practice makes perfect. I now have about 9 different styles of sewn hats. I do continue to knit hats but I mostly knit to felt. I hope to have all my hat styles represented on this Etsy page in the future. Until then come and visit my shop in Port Townsend, Wa. or contact me directly.

    Hats have been my business and passion since I began knitting them in the early 80's. I began sewing them a few years later and the rest is history. Over the years I have developed many fun but very functional styles.
