Architectural Folk Art Giveaway


Did you see snowflakes fall this week? We did! Quick… warm coats, hats, and mittens!

Joan Hebert from Orleans has been turning wool sweaters into amazing mittens for over two years. She has been selling her mittens (under her company name Architectural Folk Art) and other wonderfully hand made items at the Stowe Farmer’s Market and today wants to share her products with you!

Each pair of mittens starts as a wool sweater and is lined with soft, warm fleece. Joan makes her mittens in a variety of colors and patterns and uses antique buttons to embellish them . The large cuff, the hand stitching and the attention to detail make these mittens stand out. They are beautiful to wear and keep your hands perfectly toasty.

  1. I’ll be getting a pair for me. Most of the folks for whom I buy gifts have no use for wool mittens. I’d want a pink pair. Will be contacting Joan even if I don’t win…

  2. I love the gray with rainbow stitching and the pink and the gray with snowflakes! As much as I would like to say that I would give them as a gift, I think I would have to keep them 😉 I am a hairstylist though so it would be EXCELLENT word of mouth 😉

  3. I would be thrilled to win any one of these amazing mittens! It’s a brilliant idea!!!! Since I could use a good pair of warm mittens, I think I would keep them for myself!

    • Hi Kristen,
      Contrasting mittens can look great, too. But, I can make red ones.
      Let me know. They are $38.00 a pair. Joe’s Pond Craft Shop has
      20 pair, too. They are open Tuesday through Saturday 9:30 to 5:30
      and Sunday until 1!
