Dear Ms/Mrs. Anyom,

I received a beanie in the mail today that I found out was made by you.
Now prior to knowing that it was made by anyone/thing that wasn't in China I immediately could feel how well-made and carefully my beanie was crafted. The workmanship was AMAZING to hold, and the way the material felt was honestly better than any other beanie I've owned!
So then I found out that it was crafted by someone less fortunate than I have been and then I saw your name written on the tag and I was deeply touched. I don't know if words can express my gratitude to you for this simple gift, and I wish I could give you something as meaningful in return. I will be looking for ways to get you and your family something you need shortly after I finish this letter. The beanie is again, amazing! I really really like it, the way it feels, it's actually a perfect fit for my head too! & The design is simplistic yet instills awesomeness in any who see it. :) Thank you so much <3

Thank you with all my heart,
Naethan Peters

I just had my first baby girl and was given a beautiful crocheted headband, made by you, as a gift. She is still too small to wear it, but I cannot wait for it to finally fit. I know it will look fabulous on her and she will certainly receive many compliments because it is so beautiful. I will spread the goodness of this amazing company to many others.
Thank you for your hard work and determination to provide better for your family. God will indeed bless your efforts. Thank you Anyom. In Him

I live in Texas and went to a film festival in west texas. When I came out of the film I noticed a small booth selling beautiful hats, headbands, etc. When the salesperson told me the story of where the items came from and who made them, I happily bought several pieces. One of them was made by you. It is a black headband with a crocheted bow. I hope you the best and thank you for what you do. Much love to you and your five children. You are an amazing woman.
