It's Almost Mitten Season! - September 2018 Updates

Hello wooly mitten fans! It’s now the second week of September, and you know what time it is. School has started, pumpkin spice has taken over, and temperatures are starting to drop. That can only mean one thing: MITTEN SEASON! And boy oh boy do we have some fun things going on.

We first want to thank the hundreds of people who took the time to fill out our survey this Spring. After analyzing your responses, your voice is loud and clear. We will not be mass producing our mittens. We will continue producing the warmest high quality one-of-a-kind recycled sweater mittens you're already accustomed to, along with some other NEW products this fall :)

TMC Updates - April 2018

Thank You

Thank You

It's official! The Mitten Company has sold out of Deb's 2017/18 mittens in a little over 7 hours after opening up shop. What a fitting tribute to Deb. She lived life in the fast lane and wouldn't want it any other way. And what's even more exciting is that we are able to donate about $918 (total after all our expenses were paid or reimbursed) to the American Brain Tumor Association! Woo Hoo! We couldn't have done it without all of your help, support, and caring nature of our beloved customers.

Remembering Deb

Deb RummelThere's no easy way to say this, so let's jump right in (just as Deb lived her life; quick and to the point). For those of you who don't know, Deb (our mitten lady, CEO, teacher, wife, mother, and grandmother) lost her battle with brain cancer in late August this year. She was pain-free, and while we weren't there at the time, we got to say goodbye the night before.

I needed to cancel 3 craft shows this fall but I hope to keep these 2 shows yet before Christmas...

National Button Day!

National Button Day at The Mitten Company
Do you remember your grandmother or your mother snipping the buttons off shirts that were headed for the rag basket and then collecting them in jars? Possibly there were a couple of jars filled with different sizes and colors of buttons on her shelf that maybe you were lucky enough to be able to play with.
