About My Business

Kaitlin Deters is starting Mascot Blankets, providing custom, knitted blankets for schools, businesses, and organizations. The knitted, acrylic-yarn blankets are machine washable, in a large 53” x 63” size. With a minimum order of twelve, your school’s mascot or your business logo will be woven directly into your special blanket. Single blanket orders are available for Teutopolis, St. Anthony, Dieterich, and Effingham high schools. “The intimidation I felt about starting a business has now transformed into the excitement of seeing my idea become reality,” Kaitlin offered. Kaitlin Deters will be a business major at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. For more about Mascot Blankets, contact Kaitlin at mascotblankets@gmail.com.
