I’ll miss you, Eugene Chernin. You believed in me when I had this tiny business all those years ago. You gave me wings to fly and soar. You gently taught me the ropes about pearl cotton #3 and #5. Recently you opened a website, and I was able to place my orders online. Nevertheless, there was always someone warm and friendly to talk to. I knew my orders were taken care of. You had that old fashioned charm.
So thank you, my friends George and Mark! If you ever need any needlepoint canvases, you know where to find me. Good Luck and like you always said, Zei Gezunt!
Audrey Rosner, CPNP, is one of my favorite friends. I was a pediatric patient at her office when I was a little girl, and now care for my children. Audrey is a grandmother by now, and she stitches a gift for each grandchild. Girls get siddur covers, and boys receive tefillin bags.
Audrey wanted to stitch a weave pattern for her current project. I reconstructed the stitch from a sample she provided and was intrigued enough to stitch it too. Barry requested a pillow to coordinate with our brown leather couch. As I stitched (on a blank canvas, mind you), I was hesitant since it really looked like nothing special. But lo and behold, the finisher finished it so awesomely, it is now a stunning addition to my stitched sample menagerie.
And thank you, Audrey! It is an honor to have you as my customer.
Needlepointed Tefillin Bag
Mazel Tov to my dear son, Yossi, on his Bar Mitzvah! Yes, I know the tefillin bag was ready over a year ago. Well, he is proudly using it every morning. He’s getting lots of compliments on his bag. His Bar Mitzvah dinner was beautiful. He outdid himself with his speech. Mazel Tov to the Frank and Friedman families! Yossi, we hope to have lots of Yiddish Nachas from you and all our children.
