>The Month of the 3 Marys at 3 Kittens

>

We have 3 customers that have so much in common and are at the same time so unique that we decided to have an exhibit featuring these special women. They all share the same first name of Mary, they are each Moms, and they are all long time clients of 3 Kittens.
So May, the month for Moms, is the month of the 3 Marys at 3 Kittens!
You will be impressed by the breadth of their skills and hopefully you will understand why we thought it was important for us to share their stories with you so,
you too could appreciate their accomplishments!
Over the next 3 weeks, I will post each of the Marys stories.
Here is our first Mary!

Mary Dennis is that striking woman with a bright smile, short, sassy white hair,
wearing one of her hand knit garments often seen weekday afternoons stitching in the needlepoint room or knitting a Colinette sweater with me. Mary is one of the most charming women I have ever met. She’s most definitely an artist – but she would probably blush at hearing that. Mary has a full life keeping up with 2 grown children, Kathy & Greg, 3 grandchildren, her Westie, Molly, gardening, and travel.
Mary tells me when she was in grade school she had poor health. Because she was home
so much, to keep Mary busy, her Mother taught her how to knit and cross stitch,
do feather stitching and embroidery and cut work as well!
She has always loved knitting the most! Mary lived in New York for a time and she tells me she & her girl friend got the most incredible deals on yarns at the Reynolds warehouse on Long Island and that there was a lace mill in Port Jefferson that was also a great shopping haven. Mary has some memorable projects – a table cloth she cross stitched to match her wedding china, a skirt knit out of La Gran mohair in the 70’s (on display in exhibit), a fair isle pansy pattern sweater knit for her daughter, post World War II argyle socks! These days Mary is always knitting garments for Kathy & Emily, her grand daughter, and occasionally for her self.
She loves classic styling with a flair for color!
