Wendy Allen / Miss Fitt & Co.
Hometown: Durham, NC
Wendy Allen makes hand-felted hats, scarves, mittens and decorative flowers from merino wool and other fabrics. She has two distinct product lines, Miss Fitt which features vintage-style ladies’ hats, scarves, gloves and mittens with a variety of motifs and Moss Fête, which is fantasy and steampunk style hats, dragon scarves and ruffled collars.
The Moss Fête collection, which has a steady following, includes many costume pieces such as witch hats, top hats and wand scabbards.
Jason Momoa, the actor who played Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, visited her booth at a show in Chicago and bought several items for a photo shoot that same day!
At the next Sugarloaf Crafts Festival, have a look at Wendy’s hats, scarves and costume pieces and maybe you’ll find something for your next photo shoot, or a great looking hat and fingerless gloves for the next cold day!
