Since before we were born, our grandma has been creating and sharing her wonderful hats with all of her friends and family.
Our grandma, Ann Quinn, was born in Ireland and moved to the United States when she was twenty. Growing up in a large family, she has been taking care of those around her for her whole life. When she moved to San Francisco to start her family, she fell in love with the community, and she started making hats for all of the friends and family around her. She loves to share these original handmade pieces with every newborn baby in the neighborhood, as well as toddlers, young kids, and adults. She is thrilled to see someone wearing one of her works of art and loves the smiles they bring to so many friends and family. She has also donated her hats to school boutiques, local hospitals, and senior centers where they are much appreciated.
Not only do her hats bring joy to many people, so do her scarves and dog sweaters. She came up with the idea of making dog sweaters a few years ago after she adopted her dog, Brandy. She loves Brandy so much, and thought it would be a great idea to share her affection by making these sweaters. Over the years, Ann has crafted over five hundred handmade, unique hats, scarves, and dog sweaters that will bring a smile to anyone’s face.
We’d like to see the joy these hats bring spread even further. Our Grammy’s hats deserve to be on the heads of so many more people! And now they can. Please take a look at these handmade creations, knit with love and care. Is there anyone in your life you’d like to spread a little warmth and kindness with?
