Katie learned to crochet at the age of fifteen and loved to make handmade gifts, especially for babies. When Katie had her own daughter, she had difficulty finding hair accessories, especially headbands, that worked with a child’s hair. With her experience in the crocheting department, Katie decided that it would be easier to make headbands, rather than have to shop for them. A business was born!! After working with The Topping Tree, Katie decided to branch out and create products for adults as well as children.
One of the things that Katie prides herself on is being very particular about the types of materials she uses in her products. The yarns, elastics, and clips are all of superior quality. Katie believes that her headbands stand out from similar items because they "actually stay on your head.” She wears a headband most days and finds that her own creations feel comfortable all day long and they don’t wear out.
It is a wonderful feeling for Katie to be able to sit down and make a hair accessory to match any outfit. She loves dressing up her daughter and “topping off” the outfit with a cute hair bow or headband. Katie loves to make people happy and wants them to feel good about themselves when they wear her handmade hair accessories.
Besides crocheting, Katie enjoys doing counted cross-stitch, baking and cooking, reading, watching movies, and spending time with her family. She and her husband, Joe, have been married for eight years and have two children. Isabella, age 5, is in kindergarten and Jason, age 4, is in preschool. Katie loves being able to play with her children and have fun as a family!
