The customer may choose the colors and the pattern to fit their needs or desires, or, if they prefer, I will help them choose. The prices of these items vary according to the materials used and the difficulty of the pattern. I do not keep an inventory of items, but make each item as it is ordered. I do not yet have a web site, but I do have a page for FASHION AND FIBER ARTS on Facebook. There are pictures of some of my previous work up there.
Besides the company, FASHION AND FIBER ARTS, I have begun to publish books on Amazon.com for the Kindle. I also publish on Smashwords.com which distributes the book in several formats, some of which are accessible to read on a computer. Smashwords distributes the books to several other e-book stores, for all I-devices, for the nook, and many other e-readers. Both Amazon and Smashwords distribute overseas as well. The name of the current book is THE SECRET OF FAIR HILL, but there are at least two more books coming this year or next, to make it a trilogy. The links to the author pages on Amazon and Smashwords are as follows:
