~How many lengths do you offer? and what are they most commonly?

~If I add ribbons in between the tulle...what type of ribbon? satin? how do you tie it?

~What is an easy way to cut your tulle lengths?

~Best place to buy tulle?

~How do you get the knots clean and not all bunchy? is there a specific type of knot to use?

~How do you assemble? It seems to be kind of hard to assemble, moving around and what nto, so i tied it to my dress form and was tying them on that way...any other ideas?

~What do you charge?

Hopefully someone can help me and answer something on my list, cuz I am over here experimenting and its not as fun as I thought!!

Thanks in advance!
