Hi Maritza, you made the grey gloves I ordered. They are very soft and comfortable. It's geting colder here in Slovenia so they are going to be very useful those days. Thank you very much and I wish you all the best.

Maritza, thank you for your beautiful work that is made with such care! I love the simple elegance and comfort of my t-shirt...especially over my swimsuit for summer days at the beach. Sending love from Idaho + California, USA!

The design, feel, and color of your work gives me a boost whenever I wear it. I feel confident when a stranger notices it's uniqueness. I feel comfortable whenever I wear it. It has become a staple in my beanie collection. I hope you know somewhere not too far away, someone is appreciating your craft.

Hello Maritza! I got a hat you made for Christmas! Thank you so very much. It is gorgeous and so warm. I will be wearing it in the cold of Virginia where I farm and teach for a living. I am so glad that I'm able to cheer you on in your pursuit of your dream. Thank you so much again. Prayer & Love, Matthew

Dear Martiza,

I was so happy to know that I could find your information on this website. Last week, I wore for the first time the "LOVE" shirt you made. I received many compliments on it and it is one of my favorite shirts. Unknown to me at the time I purchased it is that I would be wearing this shirt for the first time to the Women's March in Los Angeles that brought together 750,000 people celebrating women just like you, pursuing their dreams and working hard at it. Today, I wore the shirt to Los Angeles International Airport where I marched in solidarity with other Angelenos and people from all over the world who believe that we are better when we support each other. For my small part, I hope that I was able to help you along on your journey. I believe that you will realize your dreams as a fashion designer. Keep up the good work!

"Love," of course,

For Christmas, I purchased a beanie for my brother; he absolutely loves it. There is definitely sentimental value knowing that you made it. Thank you so much! I have no doubt that you will start your own successful clothing business.

Praying for your studies and I look forward to purchasing more of your products,

My friend gave me a hat from krochet kids for my birthday. It's perfect! And it was made by you!! I wear it pretty much every day and I constantly get compliments about it. Thank you for making such a wonderful hat.
I pray that you know that you are loved, you are known, and you matter. I pray your dreams come true, that you become a designer and some day have a wonderful family of your own, and that you know that your dreams are worth fighting for!
