Beautiful Tefillin Bag Wins Ribbon at Maryland State Fair

Will you just look at that gorgeous tefillin bag! It is simply delicious to behold. Judges at the Maryland State Fair agree and awarded the tefillin bag a place of honor in the Home Crafts exhibit. Needless to say, the design behind this work of art is none other than Pepita’s Tefillin Pinwheel with some color customization and personalization. Congratulations to awesomely talented customer Ellen for this worthy win and thanks a million for sending us a photo!

Today is National Puppy Day!  The point is to adopt a puppy from a shelter and provide a loving home.  Try adopting a needlepoint puppy design too.  25% off all puppy and dog needlepoint canvases today only.   (I’m almost done stitching the puppy in the image above – I stitched with mohair and angora threads – it’s beautiful and realistic looking, and it doesn’t bark!)

 

February 10th is National Umbrella Day

Today has been designated to celebrate umbrellas. Umbrellas have been around for over 200 years.  It’s the one thing your mother always warned you not to leave home without. Umbrellas remind us mostly of wet and cold things like rain and storms, but also of large sun umbrellas at the beach, peace-of-mind umbrella insurance policies, and vaudeville tap-dancing acts. Enjoy 25% off all umbrella needlepoint canvases throughout the day.

February 4th is National Homemade Soup Day

Do you ever cook homemade soup?  A pot of simmering soup is more than just soup. It is comfort food that evokes memories of cherished family time.  Even the aroma of certain soups evoke memories.  Chicken soup smells like Passover, a vegetable soup cooking smells like snow is in the air.  A creamy soup means someone’s putting in extra effort for a fancy meal.  Egg drop soup reminds me of fortune cookies, sour cream soup (which I have not tasted in twenty years) takes me back to my Hungarian grandmother’s kitchen. In honor of National Soup Day, all soup, fruit, and vegetable canvases are 25% off throughout the day.  Enjoy the sale, and enjoy the warmth of a fresh bowl of soup today.
