      This basket is now serving as my in basket at my desk, without the shredded junk mail and fabric scraps. The posies are made by twisting the ficklesticks around the smallest straw in the Turn it All.

      I have your wonderful fun book and love making pieces from it. My question is where to find 16″ to 18″ bungee cords?

        We get ours from Ver Sales. They sell by the foot. You might also try Hobby Lobby.

    I purchased a gumball necklace and love it! I saw a woman wearing one in all black and wondered if I could order one. Please let me know.

    This October while on vacation out east I found the Fresh Produce Sportswear store in Asheville. On display was a cute top to wear with jeans with one of your whimsical, happy necklaces. I couldn’t resist the whole shebang. Puts me in a good mood even when I just look at my new necklace.

    I wish I had gotten on your website while on vacation in NC, VA, PA, TN, I would have driven my husband of 51 years nuts trying to find the other retailers. Ha ha
    We need a retailer here in Ft. Smith, Ar.

    I have purchased some of your jewelry from Martha Geist and would like to order more for my shop. Do you have a way I can place an order online? I would like a catalog also.

    Received the package today…and it made me remember why I love your jewelry…I may want to keep it all for myself!! Thanks.

    Hi Diana! I am looking to do a few necklaces for fall but in the Midwest we really do not do the brights in fall. I love the corkscrew necklace. Is there a way to do them with more autumnal colors??
    Dark red, cranberry, olive or dark green, Browns, burnt orange, etc……
    Are there any other necklaces that “read” fall??
    Hope all is well, Terri

    I collect millefiori jewelry hand-blown in Venice, and was thrilled when I found one of your fabric neclaces called millefiori. I love it. You are so imaginative. Thank you!

    I ordered the loopy necklace and have never had so many comments on a necklace! Is it available in all black, black and white or black and tan?

    I purchased my first starter kit at the Houston show. I would like to make some Cross pendants. Does anyone have any pointers?

    We have worked over the web site so it should be working better. Let me know if you find any problems.

    We have a new source of wire and now our Starter Kits contain 50 pieces of 36″ wire instead of 30 pieces. Same price!

    I purchased your Ficklesticks Fabric Jewels Starter Kit at the Houston Int’l Quilt show in Fall 2016. You showed me how to use it, but I can’t remember how you did it. Also, I’m having trouble with the written instructions. Do you have a video or can I call you and you can walk me through it again? Thanks, I’m eager to make some of these.,

    I would love to see YouTube tutorials on this!

    I recently purchased a starter kit and am having fun making gum balls. However, I can’t find anything like the tiny PVC tubing you used. Can you tell me a source, please?

    • Ficklesticks April 23, 2019 at 12:01 pm Permalink

      Hobby Lobby has five yard packages called Pony Bead Lacing. Maybe we should offer some on our web site.

      • Enid Barnes April 23, 2019 at 7:56 pm Permalink

        It would be great if you could offer it on your site. I don’t have a Hobby Lobby near me, and in checking their website, they don’t have this in black. Thank you for your prompt response.

    I have several of your necklaces and I want one that is navy and red, possibly with white, but in the style of a choker with leaves, vine-like. If you have a site where I can send a photo, I will.

    The link to the book says the page is no longer available. Is there another way to get one?

    • Ficklesticks September 30, 2019 at 1:52 pm Permalink

      Looks like C&T Publishing took down their page. I am sure that you can get a copy on Amazon or EBAY. Our Primer has more up-to-date information but fewer photos. A lot has changed in the 15 years since that book was written.

    I want to thank you for your wonderful creations that inspired me to buy a kit and attempt to make a few pieces of jewelry!
    During this time of making face masks, I discovered the wire for the
    Ficklesticks was perfect for the nose piece! Thank you again for the
    multi use product! I miss seeing you at the Paducah shows.
