"These mittens and hat are made from recycled cashmere and merino wool sweaters and are embellished with Czech Republic glass buttons. The flower on the hat is removable. My mittens and hat were made from the heart to help our local students enjoy the wonderful world of the arts and music. When their hearts are filled with joy as they are immersed in creativity and music, they will blossom and flourish. It is our youth who holds hope for a brighter future."

Artist Statement: "I am a retired university and high school Spanish teacher from Fairbanks, Alaska. After I retired with my husband in Sisters, Oregon, I discovered the world of volunteering when I first started helping with a wonderful local nonprofit called Heartwarmers. It was through this experience that I decided to truly retire and become a volunteer. Coming from a cold climate of often 20-40 below temperatures, I realized the importance of warm winter gear. In Sisters I continued the art of making wool mittens from recycled wool sweaters. I love gifting and donating them for causes for our community."
