This page is your opportunity to think out loud about the design of the special piece you'd like me to make for you. The texture, colors, type of item, who will use it, etc, are all things that we must consider when beginning the process of making a one-of-a-kind garment or accessory. You don't have to answer all these questions right away. We'll work on them in more detail as I communicate with you about your commission.
I will then sketch a design and provide some fiber and color samples for you to look at. If you approve the design concept, I will estimate the amount of time needed to make the item, and the cost of materials, and give you the final price. Upon receipt of your check for 25% of that price, I will begin working. This deposit is non-refundable. If you wish to see sample yarns and/or fibers for your project before I begin working, there's a charge of $100 to develop those samples, which will be applied to the purchase price. This charge is not refundable if you decide against commissioning the item they were developed for. The balance is due upon delivery.
Print this page if you'd like to make notes as you consider your commission.
