3 Cat Productions began in 1998 following the birth of my daughter Raina. She needed a hat to keep her tiny head warm. I made her one out of polar fleece from nearby Malden Mills and added vintage trim and flowers. What began as a single winter hat has now become a business devoted to funky and whimsical winter wear for girls of all ages. I love that I can make a product that is both utilitarian and makes people smile. My hats are made of the best fleece in the world, Malden Mills polartec and they are embellished with vintage trims that I get at auction and flea markets and trace the trends of fashion in their colors and style. (Bobby Brady orange and brown is making a HUGE comeback!) I learned to sew when I was 12 and have always used it to make things...clothes, curtains, hats, purses, animals, and yes, a living. It's a great way to create.
