My New Felt Hat!

For the past 5 happy years, my trusty brown felt hat has been nothing but good to me.

But this week, I created and fell in love with a new one.

I didn’t mean for it to happen. I wasn’t even looking for a new hat…

In fact, I was embroidering hats to replace some that had sold at the artists’ gallery, “Collective” in Woodstock, Vermont.

But once I had finished it, I knew I couldn’t let it go.

So, heads up!  If you mainly recognize me by my old brown hat, look sharp:

There’s a new hat in town!

  1. I have not had the pleasure yet of having one of Carrie’s hats in hand, but judging from the pictures and the numbers sold, they must be the best! I have been corresponding with Carrie via email and find her to be friendly, businesslike and very much into giving good service.

  2. Carrie’s hats are the type of art clothing that you will treasure for a life-time, and that’s how long they’ll last. I live in Alaska and we have a 6 month winter here and I wear the Heriloom Handknit Hat Carrie made in 2003 everyday throughout the winter. I wear it to town or dinner out, and I wear it to go sledding or skiing or on a winter walk. It shows no wear and tear. With a silky ribbon liner it never itches my very wool-sensitive forehead. I could not place a higher recommendation on these hats. They work great at keeping out the cold, and are gorgeous one of a kind beauties too. You won’t believe how many people comment on your lovely hat once you get one.
