Annie and the Swiss Cheese Scarf

We love Annie's story!

Change a child's life one book at a time...
We are so pleased to announce that we have the newly published childrens book "Annie and the Swiss Cheese Scarf" written by knitwear designer Alana Dakos. Alana even autographed the books for us so they are "extra special".

Annie and the Swiss Cheese Scarf is a story about a little girl, Annie who overcomes her frustration and challenges of learning to knit. She is rewarded for sticking with it and feels very proud of herself. What a wonderful holiday gift this can be for a special child in your life.

 We are happy to accept telephone/mail orders (916) 714-7719
