Cindy Owings


Cindy grew up a Dam Kid on 10 rivers in the West. The Purple Blanket is her memoir of pure determination, creativity, and down-home chutzpah.


From dyeing English hospital blankets in her home washing machine to selling coats to over 500 upscale clothing stores and catalogs across the US, the “river of serendipity” flows through this inspiring story. Coats sewn from the factory in the historic Coca Cola Bottling building in the NE side of Bozeman, Montana could be found on national TV, on the backs of the famous, and hanging in the closets of many a fashionista. It’s a colorful tale!
