Through out the
years we have sold our work through Art and
Craft galleries and Yarn stores. We spent
many years on the road selling our work at
large craft fairs and fiber art shows. Fiber
tools have always been our primary product.
We always display our tools with yarn for
our customers to give the tools a try, and
in this way we were able to learn from many
thousands of crocheters, knitters, weavers
and spinners just what they thought of the
function of each individual tool. We owe
them great thanks for their help. The result
is what we hope is a beautiful tool with
some designs refined over thirty years.

Jewelry, Silver Spoons, and other
house-hold implements too.
