Show Preparation

On Sunday, August 15 I'll be at the Ottawa West Mompreneur Show from 11am - 4pm at the Kanata Holiday Inn Select and Suites on Kanata Avenue.

A lot of Mompreneurs will be there so be sure to come and check it out.
Of course I have been frantically making hats and as always I feel like I'm lacking in certain styles and certain sizes! But this is where I'm at right now. This is what just over 70 hats looks like. I'm hoping to add more but we'll see what happens as I'm also trying to get wholesale orders completed!

I'm also excited to announce that Spoiled Sugar will soon be launching their website and they'll be stocking Loopy 4 Ewe hats! I'm working on getting hats to them as quickly as I can - right now I have a few that will be picked up today and hopefully shown on A-Channel (in Ottawa) tomorrow at 9am! So be sure to watch the segment for a peak at Spoiled Sugar and hopefully some Loopy 4 Ewe hats! Here's a sneak peak of some of the Spoiled Sugar hats!

This Always Happens!

Every year I think I'll take advantage of the summer and make tons of inventory for the fall and experiment with new hats. But summer is always so busy. I do make hats...but... lol not as many as I dream of. The weather is hot and sticky, the activities are plentiful and this year I have fallen prey to an incredible author and her series of books that haven been around for many many years but I've only recently discovered and fallen in love with.

Tomorrow is exciting. We're having a photo shoot with the talented Jennifer Bailey ( assuming it doesn't rain! Please don't rain.

We have some great joint promotions planned which are in the works and will hopefully be revealed soon. Check back soon for some sneak peaks of the photos from tomorrows session and be sure to check out her website too and book her! You will never regret having these moments captured forever!

Join Our Mailing List

I'm starting a mailing list and you can sign up here at Loopy 4 Ewe's Mailing List :

Why should you sign up?

I know not everyone checks Blogs and Facebook all the time. This mailing list will be used to provide you with details for upcoming shows, the launch of a new website, specials and promotions that you won't want to miss out on!

And don't worry - I won't be filling your mailing box on a daily or even weekly basis! The majority of the emails will likely come in the Fall when I have the most shows. Even then I'll try to keep them concise!

Thanks so much!

New Pictures Have Arrived!

This computer shuffle I'm doing is a bit of a pain but I'm slowly getting into the swing of things.

I love this combination for the fall. Gold, brown and burnt orange.
Thanks to Erin Dietrich for providing these shots!

I just received a cd in the mail today with some shots of my hats. They are huge though so I have to reinstall my software to make them smaller. Plus I'm waiting to hear about some others that I should receive soon.

Stay tuned!

New Hats!

Check it out - I'm going to be offering new hats soon. Well I actually already do if you shop in person!

These are the new visor beanies I'm making. I sell them without flowers. $24 for kids, $32 for adult. However these prices will be going up in the fall. I also sell flowers separately that are on clips. They can be purchased to change the look of the hat or to be worn in hair. They are $5 each.

But here's a picture of the new hat:

Actually if you've been around for awhile you know they're not that new. I've made them for the little ones before on a special request. But now they will be offered on a more regular basis and in more sizes. They are not listed yet in any of my shops so if you want one - contact me and leave your email address or send me a message through facebook -

Hat Production - Spring is here!

Loopy 4 Ewe hats make the perfect spring accessory! I've been making a lot of Easter coloured inspired hats lately as well as these which have all been custom orders.

I'll have to take a picture of some of the sock creations that have been born lately! Truly they are just too cute. Including a super soft bunny and a cowboy. For now if you want to get your mitts on some of them you'll have to come and visit one of our shows.

Why People Stop By!

It's interesting to see what people are searching for when they land on my blog. Lately a lot of people coming have been searching for information on The Weekend To End Women's Cancers (Formerly the Weekend to End Breast Cancer)

If this is something you are considering signing up for - DO IT! You will not regret your decision. If you're worried about fundraising - just get creative! When I signed up for my first walk (only last year) that was my big worry too. How will I raise the minimum required $2000 to be able to walk. It took some work, but it was great and you know - I raised more then just the $2000!

What did I do? I sent personalized emails to people asking for donations and explained why I was walking. Cancer effects so many people. Chances are if your asking someone they've either been effected by cancer or knows someone who has been. Which sucks.

I also got my community involved. I found a local organizer of a huge used clothing sale and my team set up a bake sale table. I had a friend having a street sale and she invited our team to set up a table and sell stuff - all proceeds going to the walk. We signed it well and told everyone - this way we had very few people haggling over prices! Some people even brought us stuff to sell or just handed us over a donation and we did bottle drives.

I also made stuff and sold it. Which inspired others to make stuff! Within the past 2 years I've made hats and lip balm cozies which I've sold and donated the proceeds to the walk which here benefits the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. Then it grew - I had an amazing glass bead maker make handmade lampwork buttons that I used on my lipbalm cozies, an incredible seamstress made beautiful wallets made out of pink ribbon material that were sold, a bath and body maker made custom lip balm with our team name and url to go with my lip balm cozies! It's a snowball effect. If you start it and get the word out it grows. People want to help! Bookbinders, jewlery makers, card makers and more have all helped me by making handmade items that they've sold and donated the proceeds.

What can you do? Do you bake? Cook? Have a girls night in party with a min donation required. Does your local grocery store allow charities to hold bbqs? A garage sale and ask everyone you know for stuff to sell. Ask a store manager if you can set up a table and ask for donations from their customers (hand out ribbons, or our kids made pink and white zipper pulls/keychains!). The biggest thing that you may have to overcome is asking people for money. It's a good idea to remember that you're not askign for a handout. You're asking for money to help make a difference it the lives of millions. Don't you want to be a part of that?!?!

Yes, committing to this walk is a bit of a commitment. Yes, the idea of raising $2000 can seem scary. But you know what?!?! Anyone can do it - including YOU! You just need to put that thinking cap on and get to work. Ask your friends for ideas! It's not hard. And the memories you make from the walk will be worth it. So much so that you may find it a bit addictive:)

A few new hats

I'm hoping this will post. I've been having issues lately connecting to some sites and posting pictures. Which is why I haven't been around much!
Here are 4 of the latest flappers I've done.

Post a Fan Photo on Facebook!

No, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. I got a new computer just before the holidays and have been having issues with various sites since I've received it. For some reason I have a hard time loading sites like Etsy and even this blog!

To keep the momentum going I'm asking for past customers to post their fan photos on the Loopy 4 Ewe facebook page. Do that and in February I will award one lucky fan who's posted a picture with a free Loopy 4 Ewe hat!

Fun eh? You get to show off your cuties and you may get a free hat out of the deal.

Here's the direct link:
