CCM Felt Hat Trunk Show at White River Yarns

Sometimes, things turn out so serendipitously, you just can’t help but smile & be amazed.  My upcoming trunk show at White River Yarns this Thursday at 6pm is one of those times.

It all started when a customer-friend wore her newest embroidered felt hat into White River Yarns in White River Junction, VT a few months ago.

(And let me just say… this particular hat of hers is an extraordinarily fancy 5 Flower Vine embroidery, custom-designed to go with a new purple coat:)

So… Karen, the lovely & wonderful shop owner sees the hat, stops my friend to admire it, tracks down my info & lo! calls me up the very next day:

“I **love** your hats & want them in my store. Let’s meet to talk about it…”

So meet we did!

I had not yet been to White River Yarns & was immediately impressed by the cozy situation Karen has there next to the Hotel Coolidge in Downtown WRJ:

It’s a lovely little shop, whose motto, “Knitting the community together” is evident everywhere you look.

Naturally, there are bins overflowing with colorful yarn along every wall up to the ceiling:

Plus, books and buttons, needles and notions, patterns and knitted items of every sort right there to inspire you:

There is a little kitchen corner, equipped with mini-fridge, microwave, mugs & tea, plus a perpetual bowl of candy on the counter.

But the best part by far is the collection of cozy chairs, variously inhabited by shop regulars & newbies alike, all enjoying the benefit of Karen’s generous hospitality & knitting wisdom:

  1. Hi Carrie, I was at Karen’s yarn shop today and purchased the dragonfly purple felted hat. I just loved it and it is so nice and warm. I’m not a hat lover but this one spoke to me and I even loved it on. Thank you, you do such amazing work.

      I’m so glad you found a hat you love that fits & will love you right back through many chilly seasons. Especially if you don’t usually wear one… They can make such a positive impact on your winter comfort!
