Hi Acan,

I wanted to thank you for my beautiful Beck's Jr. hat! I purchased your hat on a trip to San Diego. Typically, San Diego is warm but we ended up having some chilly days and your hat kept me nice and snug, and continues to do so during the winter in my hometown of Manhattan, NY! I wear it every day.

You are very talented and I appreciate your craftsmanship. I also greatly admire your perseverance and strength. You have already accomplished so much with your positive attitude. I will tell my friends and family about your work and recommend they purchase as well, and I will continue to be a customer.

Best wishes,

Hello Acan!
My good friends, Marc and Kim, both live in Seattle, Washington, and they sent me one of your incredible hats as a birthday/christmas present (my birthday is December 6th, so I get a lot of combined presents for birthday and christmas). The hat is super soft and incredibly well made. As I am writing you this Thank You Note, the snow is coming down a lot - we are in the middle of a major blizzard! Your hat will certainly keep me warm during the cold and snow-filled Vermont winters. Thank you so much!
Wishing you and your family a very happy holidays and only wonderful blessings in the New Year!
Kind regards,
Burlington, Vermont

Dear Nighty,

I received a lovely Miranda scarf as a Christmas gift this year. I will think of you and the care and love you put into the krocheting of the scarf when I wear it this winter. The cold is coming and it is going to keep me warm and cozy. Keep up your meaningful work. Even though we have not met I feel you are a friend and I'm proud of your skill in krocheting beautiful items.

Happy New Year from the USA to Uganda.

Thank you so much for my beautiful hat! It will keep my ears very warm as it is snowing now where I live in New York State, USA. I am so happy to know that you made my hat and will order more in the future. I pray that your children will get an education and know they are so blessed to have a mother like you!!! God bless you and your family and thanks again❤️
