About

"I will not reason and compare: my business is to create."
-William Blake

"What an abyss of uncertainty whenever the mind feels that some part of it has strayed beyond its own borders; when it, the seeker, is at once the dark region through which it must go seeking, where all its equipment will avail it nothing. Seek? More than that: create. It is face to face with something which does not so far exist, to which it alone can give reality and substance, which it alone can bring into the light of day."

SHIPPING:

I ship about three times between Monday and Saturday. If you live outside the U.S., I will probably ship within 3-4 business days because it means that I have to wait in long New York City post office lines, instead of using the fast self-service machine! Let me know if you need items faster than this and I will work with you.



SAFETY:

I securely sew all beads and small pieces on my crochet goods. However, I am probably no match for the teeth of some of your little ones! Let me know if you are purchasing something for a small child; we can talk about replacing the beads with french knots of equal size, for example.
