Special Projects - Crochet Knitting Spinning by Amanda Schaefer - Hamptons Long Island New York

  Order a project specially made for you or your loved one! The beauty of special orders is that the options are endless, and the finished piece will be made exactly to your preferences and ideas. Whether the piece is for you or a friend or loved one, a handmade gift is a gift which has value (both monetary and sentimental) beyond any other.

Price will vary based on the complexity of the project (see below). A 1/3 deposit is required on orders costing over $50. I accept PayPal and cash (see terms and conditions). The rest of the payment is due upon completion of project.

Take a look at my portfolio to see some of my finished hand-made pieces. If you have any pictures or ideas or any other bits of inspiration I am happy to help you develop and turn those ideas into a completed piece of art.

We will communicate via email and by phone conversation also. I believe speaking about it over the phone is much more efficient than just email communication, which can be unclear and vague.

Any and all repairs needed for items hand-made by me will be completed by me free of cost.

Handspun Yarns

- Your choice of fiber (wool, alpaca, etc.).
- Your choice of color (dyed or natural color).
- Your choice of weight (lace-weight, fingering, sport, DK, worsted, bulky, etc.).

Add-ins available (beads, sparkle, sequins, etc.).

Price varies based on weight and yardage of yarn, cost of fiber (if I have to supply the fiber). For example, although a thinner weight yarn uses less fiber than a worsted or bulky yarn, it takes me much longer to prepare and spin the fiber.

Note: I do not spin so-called "art yarns".

If you would like, I can hand-spin yarn, or use commercial yarn of your choosing (if you are not sure, I will suggest some to you). Add-ins available (beads, appliqués, etc.)

Needle-felted Appliqués

I do not do custom needle-felted portraits or sculptures, but I am able to needle felt small appliques or extras for a hand-crocheted piece (flowers, vines, needle-felted locks of wool onto edging or collar, small teddy bears, etc.)
