Answers to Some Questions

Since I posted the information about the intensive workshops at my studio and the arrival of my book, I have been getting a lot of emails asking the same questions. So I am addressing them here.

About the book

When will my book arrive?

We are doing our best to ship orders within one business day. According to the US Postal Service, delivery within the US should take 2-3 days. To other countries the post office states 6-11 days, but from my experience it can take a few weeks depending on your local mail delivery. If you are outside the US, your local postal service may be able to provide more information.

Am I allowed to sell pieces that were inspired by projects in your book?

Yes. As stated in the introduction to each of my books, you are welcome to make the projects for both personal and commercial use.

I am a teacher. Do you mind if I teach projects from your books?

Not at all. A credit will be appreciated, though.

What is the best way to read the book?

It’s best to read in the order in which the projects are presented. It was written with the purpose of simulating the hands-on experience in class.
