My favorite part of the Featured Shop of the Week program is finding new shops to love! This week's feature is Creative Hats and More.
Creative Hats and More started about 3 years ago when owner, Elaine Noonan, started crocheting and knitting hats and scarves for her kids and grandchildren. She says, "I would bring items into work and people would start ordering them. I love to create and design. I have now expanded to photo props, gloves and scarves. My photo prop items include hats, headbands, blankets, novelty hats, and seasonal items. I make a variety of hats in any style you would want. If I don't have it,I would love to try. I am now on Etsy and Facebook. I love working with different fibers. I love hand painted yarns. I never get tired of it. I also do knitting."

When asked about the most challenging part of having her own business, Elaine said, "The biggest challenge is trying to get promoted. I am finally working with a baby shop and photographer that has really helped get my items out there. "
Elaine would like all Creative Hats and More fans to know, "I love my craft. I love the challenge of making something I have not made before. I try not to make two hats the same. Most of my designs are my own. I do not write many of them down. I have bought very few patterns."
