So many people played a part in the success of ‘Hats by Peach’. From our childhood babysitter, Mary, who taught me to knit using two pencils, to Marian Imhof, seamstress extraordinaire, who mentored me when I started doing hats, and told me when I was ready to do shows solo. My mother-in-law, Arla, who taught me to crochet in the 70’s, and our youngest, Tyler, who helped me at shows, created my web site, and taught me to use social media.

I was lucky to meet so many crafters along the way who were willing to share show info and tips with me. Now I’m returning the favor to the younger ones starting out.

Over the years, I have come to personally know so many of my wonderful customers. Some customers have enough ‘Hats by Peach’ to fill their own hat rack. I get a kick when I’m out in public and I see a lady wearing one of my hats. Once I was at Lowe’s and a lady asked me if I was wearing a ‘Peach’ hat. That made my day.

My hats have changed a lot since the 90’s. Not just because my skills improved, but the yarns are so fun. I never had patterns. Everything is in my head. When I retire, I plan to publish a book of hat patterns. I’m sure I will sell at least one copy, to my Mom. And she can’t knit or crochet!

I hope to see you at one of my shows. There’s a hat for everyone, and I’d be happy to help you find yours.
