Hilltop Spinning & Weaving Centre
This website advertises the Spinning and Weaving courses offered by Sue Chitty together with presenting a great deal of information about Spinning and Weaving in general.
Individual pages describe the different Spinning Wheels, Weaving Looms, Yarns and accessories. Over 130 products are for sale and the website provides all the order processing and stock control needed. The contact form is linked to a database allowing customer requests and enquiries to be recorded in the administration centre of the website.
The website replaces a previous non-selling website. The design brief was that the finished design must reflect as closely as possible the original design created by the business owner many years ago. The final result is very very close to the original. This is quite tricky given that the software now being used is very much more advanced.
