She became the instructor of word processing and excell in personnel. She then went to formal classes to improve her skills. When Ioni retired she encourage many people to learn to knit. Friends and neighbors met at each others house to learn the crafty skils.
Pat heard about Ioni and started doing crafts together. Now they collaberate together regarding etsy.

Finding clients to buy or sell my creations is by word of mouth and etsy. Trying all kinds of ways to get clients is the very hard. Prospective clients are coming to the sight, but because of the economy there are no sales as yet from etsy.

No matter what you do sometimes nothing works. Donot dispare keep working at it and it will happen in Gods own time. She is 69 and she is not giving up.
Ta Ankh came to me as a student and we just cliked immediately. She has this Flavor, Style, Attitude, and carisma. and we just clicked. We expressed our thoughts on what we wanted for our future and thats all she wrote. Keep watching this web page and see our future grow. We will have new items from week to week. Up and coming in our line is soft jewelry, swim suits, and more.We take great pride in what we do. Our items are fabulously beautiful, on the cutting edge, conventional, and wearable by all. We are constantly exspanding our merchandise. Soon to come MENS wear. Together Ta Ankh and I will be expanding our merchandise to Menswear Knit/Crochet items. Hand made fabric apparel. Keep comming back our wears are growing, more and more.
Working hard at her crafts she is determined to have her business to be advertised and selling well to make me at least a multi millionaire. To keep encouraging her children and other children not to be discourage to keep trying until they succeed at whatever is their goals.

Ioni is striving to get on one of the top shows to exhit what she can create.

About Ta Ankh:
Since the age of 14, she worked with her parent's in the family business doing a little bookkeeping, a little merchandising, and sales. Here she learned the finer points of jewelry and business, as well as how to deal with clients.
But she always yearned to have something of her own, a place to express her own creativity and style.
About two years ago, Ta Ankh's prayers were answer in the person of her teacher Ioni who not only began to teach her crochet and knitting among other things, but who made it look fun and easy.
They began having lessons on Ioni's front porch which eventually gave birth to Ioni's Creations.
