Meet Artisan Margaret Masessa
After moving to Maine in 1988 and having children in 1989, 1990 and 1995, my goal was to stay home and raise a family. I learned about knitting machines and contract knitting, and then started my own knitting business, Made Especially For You.
The winters in Maine are challenging at times, so knitting was a way to relax and regroup. The more I knitted for other businesses, the more I wanted to design and knit for myself. Over the years I have sold machines and given knitting classes and working at house parties where you could custom design your own garments. I now only sell at Lupine Cottage Exclusively
The Lupine Cottage is my dream, and I spend a lot of my time there. I have a machine at the shop that allows me to produce, demonstrate, and teach what I do.
From Tricia, "I bought a pair of these double knit wool mittens last June when visiting Maine. They saved me when shoveling out from the big storm in Boston a few weeks ago. Usually cold hands are the limiting factor, but these mittens kept my fingers warm.!"
" Just so you know, we have cattle and I work hard every day. I wore all this winter a pair of your double mittens (a longer length brown pair) that survived through at least four hard winters. They've finally said "goodbye, old friend". I'm looking forward to my new pair and your lovely socks. Thank you again! " Mary Thompson
