Such pretty little lace doilies, beautifully made, and they add such a nice little touch of elegance under a votive or a tiny plant. :)

This doily is so beautiful. I made a special order and it turned out even nicer than I expected. The shop owner was so kind and worked so hard to make sure I got exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much.

I cant thank you enough for your willingness to do this piece for me as a custom order. I realize it entailed more work/time than anticipated. Thank you for providing me with updates and for being so detail oriented. It turned out beautiful!

Ruth Sandra Sperling's Handmade Finished Products in The Fiber Arts of Crochet, Knitting, and Sewing
Hi! I'm Ruth Sandra Sperling - the "RSS" in RSS Designs In Fiber, an Independent who Crochets, Knits and Sews and sells some of the Finished Products - some of which you will see here in my Etsy Shop!
How did it start? Actually, I had been Crocheting since my Teens - drawing and doing other Arts and Crafts since I was a Toddler. In 2001 I had started spending a bunch of time Crocheting all kinds of things: an Afghan, a Sweater - and kept doing more in 2002: a Mat, a Bag, a Lap Blanket, a Stuffed Egg, a Stuffed Pillow, Hats and Scarves, a Stuffed Giraffe, a children's outfit - some of patterns I had and some I made up on my own!
Then, for the Winter Holidays of 2002, I participated in a local Holiday Boutique - and had some Hats and Scarves on consignment in a local store. I found out that some people like buying things I made. Then I was asked if I would crochet some Thread Crochet Doilies to sell locally - and some of them sold and some people wanted Custom-made Thread Crochet items -- and my little Handmade Craft Business started - and has been going ever since!
I NOW make a variety of things!! In Thread Crochet, I make all kinds of things from small Trinkets (Coasters and other Decorations) to average-sized Doilies to large Centerpieces and Table Runners - even a Tablecloth - mostly Decor, but also some Personal Accessories or Things To Wear. In Yarn, I both Crochet and Knit: Decor, Personal Accessories, Hats and Scarves, Bags (including Laptop Sleeves).
I do all this in quite a variety of Crochet Techniques:
- Irish Crochet (including multi-layer Crocheted Roses)
- Filet Crochet (Pictures, Designs and Words)
- Tapestry Crochet
- Tunisian or Afghan Crochet
- Celtic Woven Crochet
- Crocheted Cables
- And all kinds of Stitches!
I also Knit - from basic Stockinette and Garter Stitches to Cables and Lace and Tapestry.
I sometimes make things combining Sewing Fabrics and either Crocheting or Knitting.
I sometimes incorporate different kinds of Beads in my Crochet and Knitting!
In addition to my Current Listings, you can check my previous Sales - or search RSS Designs In Fiber online to see the different Handmade Items I have made and are in photographs online.
Everything in this Etsy Shop, RSS Designs In Fiber - is Handmade Only by Ruth Sandra Sperling - or may be a Supply for Handmade sold by Ruth Sandra Sperling!

I have a life-long love of Arts and Crafts of many kinds - some I have just admired - some I have attempted doing - since I was a Toddler. Now I focus on doing the Fiber Arts Designs like I sell here - and Outdoor Photography - Inspired by Nature!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
Yes, I do Custom Orders - and I do them myself in the Order I have arranged them! I will arrange what the Materials, Colors, Size, Price, Production Time, and Processing Time are with the Customer by Email. Once all details for the Order are arranged, an Advanced Payment - Minimum 50% - is required to start Production. Upon completion of the Custom Order, I send photos - and I Ship upon Customer Approval and Cleared Final Payment.
Shipping Ready-To-Ship Items
I Ship by US Postal Service as soon as possible once payment has cleared my account whether Payment is through Etsy Payments, PayPal or Payment by Mail - usually 1-2 Post Office business days after cleared payment. The Time of Shipment after Purchase will depend on Customer's choice of Payment Method - and when that clears. I prefer Shipping USPS Priority Mail with Tracking and Insurance, which is what is on each Etsy listing and the Package usually arrives at the Customer USA Address in 2-3 days. Upon Shipment, I provide the Customer with the Tracking information. I will make arrangements to ship Internationally on a sale-by-sale basis with the International Customer.
