Customer Service

What makes a good shopping experience? Quality merchandise and great customer service. If you can find what you want quickly, and get help when you need it, you will be a happy shopper. Great customer service is what separates the large department stores from the smaller individual businesses like Custom Design Sweater Studio.

It is my goal to provide excellent customer service, the kind you just can't find in a department store. No detail of your hand knitted custom design is too small to discuss with me, from size and placement of buttons, to type of neckline finish, length of sleeves or size and placement of a pocket. Every email will be answered, usually within 24 hours (longer on weekends). I love designing and hand knitting unique and customized sweaters on my home knitting machine, and will give you my full and complete attention. I promise you that I will do my best to make sure that your shopping experience is a good one, and that your custom design sweater is knitted exactly as you have instructed.

On this page you will find links to information about sizes, yarn colors, features like sleeve styles and necklines, as well as how to place an order, how to pay the deposit, shipping/handling, delivery times, cancellations and refunds, etc. If you still have a question, try looking in the Frequently Asked Questions section, a small but growing page of my customers' favorite questions.

Please don't hesitate to send me an email; it is absolutely the quickest and fastest way to reach me.

Or, you can call me at 1-888-797-1088 or 1-201-693-7239.  While I don't always pick up the phone while I am knitting, I do listen to my voice mail messages every day. If you prefer to speak on the phone, we can set up a time which will be convenient for you.

Need to mail something to me?  Please send it to me at this address:  Mrs. Susan G. Feltman, Custom Design Sweater Studio, P.O. Box 73, Leonia, NJ 07605.

Custom Design Sweater Studio has a fax machine, which can be useful if you want to fax a sketch to me. Please ask for the fax number and let me know when you will be sending the fax, so I will be sure to have the machine turned on. We can also use Skype or FaceTime, if you want - please ask me in an email, and we will set up a convenient time.

Sizes and their Measurements

Here are the size charts, with measurements for each size. It's easy to adjust the size, for instance, you can have two inches of additional length in the body and/or sleeves. This page contains my YouTube video, "How to Measure for Your Custom Design Sweater", showing how to measure your favorite teeshirt for the four measurements needed to plan your sweater design. If you prefer to have me do the measuring for you, there are  instructions on this page for sending a garment to be measured, photographed and returned.
