Question: How long does it typically take to make a baby blanket or afghan? 
Answer:   Orders are completed in the order that they are received, and deposits are paid. If there are no orders in cue, a baby afghan can be turned around in two to three weeks (production and shipping time included), and a fuller-sized afghan can be generally turned around in four weeks. Ultimately, the length of time will be determined by the complexity and size of the order.

Question: Where can I find the cost of a particular item? 
Answer:   Each item is made to order, therefore, prices will vary. Prices will be determined on an individual basis; however, as a general guide, baby afghans average a cost of $50, throws begin at $75, and fuller-sized afghans begin at $100.  Shipping and handling, packaging, and taxes are extra.

 Can I select my own color for patterns seen here? 
Answer: Yes. The more information you provide regarding your preferences, the more tailored your selection.

How are orders with multiple items handled?
Answer: The items in your order will be completed and shipped by your assigned priority. Please note that separate shipping charges will apply, if items are shipped separately.

Question: Can I have an item sent directly to a gift recipient?
Answer: Yes. Please specify this in the "comment" section or "ship to" section of your order form. In addition, you may specify whether the item needs to be gift-wrapped for the specific occasion (baby shower, house-warming, wedding, etc.) Gift packaging costs are additional.

What kind of yarn is used to make the items shown in the portfolio?
Answer: Yarn types vary by selection. Some of the patterns are made using worsted weight yarns, sport weight yarns, or wool-blend yarns. Most handmades use an acrylic or acrylic blended yarn. You may specify the type of yarn that you prefer, however, please note that the cost as well as the final product's tension, softness, layout, and feel will be affected by yarns other than those specified in the selections seen on this site.
