I would like to take a moment to thank Bev Qualheim of Bev's Country Cottage Website for making Aunt Maggies Slippers the "Pattern of the Month" and suggesting Beth's Hats For Hope as the charity to make them for. Bev's has always been the "go-to" site for me whenever I need pattern inspiration and I know you will have great success there as well. 

If your organization will need hats for the 2013/14 winter season please send an email to We are taking requests at this time and will do all we can to help.

If you are looking for a great project to be part of, please check the Needs/Wish List page and Current Projects page for more information or Contact Us.

Have a great week!
