May I take your order, please?

I was on such a roll with the millefiori-making for the last several days, but I had to force myself to stop. It was fun, but the longer I spent doing that, the less time there would be left to fill customer orders, and I would hate to short change any of you!

So, like a good little worker bee, I slipped out of my cane-making hat and slipped on my webmaster hat yesterday. I haven’t tried to take custom orders since I redesigned this website last winter, and there were things that needed to be dealt with.

It took me all day, but I got it where I wanted it, and today I am happy to invite you to visit the shop and place your custom orders!

All of the old favorites are back, and I’m introducing the new kids on the block: seam rippers!


There are 12 patterns available to choose from this time. Usually, I do nine, but like I said above, I was on a roll 😀

You can request any one of these patterns on any of my products. Or you can have me just pick whichever one I like if you are the indecisive type.

Miscellanous cane designs

Also, there are a handful of random patterns that are either from previous years, or are kaleidoscopic re-workings of older canes and scraps. These may be in very short supply, and can disappear at any time, so they are not listed as options. I will, however, be making use of some of them when I work up some ready-to-ship items, and I’m also willing to use them by request if you see a design you just must have!

Custom ordering will only be open until November 30th -or- until I have as many orders as I can realistically handle before Christmas.

My goal is to get all orders shipped before mid-December, so I must necessarily place limits on the number of pieces I can make. If you have your eye on something, it’s best not to delay!

Please have a look around, and let me know if you run into any trouble, or have any questions!

    1. I’m seriously considering doing a (VERY) small batch this year. If I do, I will make sure I let everyone know on the blog and the mailing list. Thanks for your interest!
