Gift Certificates Make Great Gifts

Maybe you’re a Procrastinator and still haven’t found that perfect holiday gift for your Someone Special… Or maybe your Someone has a winter birthday and you’re challenged coming up with more gift ideas… Or maybe you’re getting a jump on Valentine’s Day?

In any case, a CCM Felt Hat Gift Certificate might be just what you’re looking for:

A gift certificate allows someone to pick out their very own Carrie Cahill Mulligan felt hat, or kit.

Gift certificates make excellent gifts and are redeemable for felt hats or kits any time. You can schedule a custom trip to my hat studio in Canaan, or visit me at the League of NH Craftsmen’s Fair in August.

Cinder-dog, Andy & Carrie Mulligan of Canaan, New Hampshire wish you & yours a healthy, happy & prosperous New Year!

Cinder, Andy & I wish you & yours a healthy, happy & prosperous New Year!

And after the crazy year we’ve had, we are especially thankful for your support.

Happy, happy New Year!

Icy Seafoam Mandala Bound For Newfoundland

Most of the hats I make end up here in New England and the Northeast (although occasionally one finds a home in the Pacific Northwest or Alaska).

Last week, I shipped off my first hat ever to Newfoundland:

Freehand embroidery of French knots on icy sea foam felt hat by fiber artist, Carrie Cahill Mulligan of Canaan, New Hampshire.

Embroidered felt hat #82 of 2012.

French knots and split stitch make up the embroidered mandala design.

I’m delighted to have my work tested in the raw, wet winters of Newfoundland, and I love that the colors of this particular hat echo those of icebergs born of the North Atlantic. Seems particularly fitting!
