Hi, I'm Dawn Kauffman and I've been creating crocheted hats and household items under the banner of Keep Them in Stitches since 2014. I was in business with a dear friend who unexpectedly passed away in 2016 so I crochet with her in mind always! It's no surprise I ended up in the handmade craft world since my mom's side of the family pieced quilts, crochets blankets and cross stitches while my dad's side is Amish.
I started knitting at a conference where a friend cast on a scarf for me because I couldn't sit still anymore in meetings! I started making baby blankets for friends and made 14 in the first year. Fast forward to the end of 2012 when my husband and I were planning a 3 month overseas missions trip. I knit scarves as a fundraiser and my coworker (and future business partner) invited me to a few craft shows to boost sales. In six months, I knitted 200 ruffle scarves! After our trip, I continued making scarves to sell and started on crocheted hats after realizing I could make 3 hats in the time it took to knit one! And the rest is history!
I am originally from Pennsylvania and moved to Montana in 2006, fulfilling a high school dream! 6 months later, I met my husband and we married in 2009. We became foster parents in 2015 and adopted Little Man in March of 2019. Now we get to learn and navigate the world of parenting a special needs child. 2019 also brought Small Fry to us through a truly surprise pregnancy! I am so thankful that my crochet sales let me be home more often with my kids. My Products Include: Animal and character hats for all ages Beanies and brimmed hats for all ages Recycled wool yarn dryer balls Headbands and ear warmers Kitchen towel holders Crocheted Blankets Lots of special orders in team colors and MORE!!
