Rave Reviews

- Hey Michele. I am always browing your shop and see a Lynx hat like my coyote hat i got from you last year and it
reminded me of mine. I got it I think it was just before winter really got harsh. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know I
love my hat and wear it all the time. I get so many compliments and just love love love it. This is only a kudos to you and
your special talents. I hope your shop is doing well and that you are too.

- Michele worked with me in deciding what materials worked best for what I wanted.
She was very knowledgeable and responded to every question I had promptly!
The quality in the product I received was fantastic, and I would highly recommend her work to anyone.
I will definitely be making another purchase in the future!

Thanks again!

- I have known Michele for 5 years now and her work is far and above the best work I've ever seen. My daughter has
purchased one of her hats and I have purchased other pieces of her work. She is totally above board and very
professional in all her dealings. I have seen her studio and it is quite amazing to see her at work. Check out the custom
coats as well, they are definite works of art. Annette H. BC

- She does wonderful work with her Mongol hats and is probably one of the most professional people that I know on our
sales cicruit. I have been doing sales at Renaissance Fairs and with the SCA for almost 20 years now and have known
many vendors. You shouldn't hesitate to purchase any of her merchandise. It will be well made and delivered promptly.

- I have known Michelle for six years and have done business with her myself on numerous occasions. I can assure you
she is an honorable and reputable business woman. If she has agreed to make you one of her highly demanded hats, you
can believe me when I tell you, you are privileged, as she doesn't make them for just anyone. Her work is of the highest
quality and in such demand that she can pick and chose her customers. Consider yourself fortunate . . . . she can . . . and
will deliver.

- I have known Michele now for about four years, and will admit that her hats are utterly addicting! I own five of them
(with and without fur) as well as three coats (on her coat page, the shot of her standing next to a red/black coat with a
large coat of arms on it plus leaping bunnies, is my coat with me in it).

Her work is utterly first class, uses quality materials (and as she notes, RECYCLED FURS - she is careful to use soft
pelts where the hair is not shedding, something I watch for), and delivers ON TIME.

Although I live in Ottawa, I have driven the 5 hrs on the highway to get to Toronto when she is at a crafts fair in order to
see what she's got this season (and usually hurt my credit card at the same time! LOL).

I hope this is of some help to you in making your decision on ordering from her. She's a great boutique business with
excellent (and collectable!) goods.

- I would overwhelmingly recommend her to anyone. I have one of her custom hats. You wouldn't believe how many
people tell me how beautiful it is and ask me where I got it. She is a creditable business woman who goes out of her way
to make her customers happy.

If her name comes up, or someone sees one of her hats, they will mention they have one or want one, and a list of names
of who they know who have one of her hats and/or coats.

I've had my hat for four years, it goes to SCA events (camping) with me. I also wear it on cold days outside of the SCA.
My husband also has a hat made by her. People admire him in it.

- I personally own three of her hats and a coat. Many of my friends from other Kingdoms now wear her coats and hats.
She pretty much sold out the first year she showed up at Gulf Wars because her hats are so well made. She is hatmaker
to the Crowns of An Tir plus you can't turn around at an event in An Tir without seeing someone wearing one of her hats.
They are awesome! She is a very honorable and trustworthy merchant.

-Michele has been making the custom hats for several years and is an amazing craftsperson.
Her hats are in high demand in the medieval society we both play in. She has shown great integrity all the years I have
known her. I have no problem giving her the highest recommendation. She is honest, hard working and

-What a wonderful Christmas present I received from my Husband. One of your beautifully hand-made Mongol Hats that
is pictured on your website. The first 3 pictures in the second row. It is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship.
I screamed with delight when I unwrapped it. In fact, I am wearing it as I am emailing you.
I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas like I am. You have made me a very happy girl...

Best Regards,

Dear Michele,
A quick note of thanks for a simply wonderful Mongolian hat! I could not be happier with you, your business, and the
resultant product- and it arrived just when you said it would. I will spread the gospel for you when the questions and
comments come in. Well, it has been a pleasure doing business with you, and once again...thank you!
Sincerely, Joseph Evans.

The hat arrived yesterday. It is simply gorgeous. Absolutely perfect. :) I shall be wearing it for Solstice and on a side
note, the cream of the wool in the hat matches perfectly the cream wool I am using to make a dress for the occasion as
well. :) Thank you ever so much.
May your days be full of blessings, and the burdens that come with them be light.
Brightest of Blessings
