As an avid needlepointer, I take a great interest in the motivation of a stitcher. I know what motivates me; needlepoint relaxes me, and I feel creatively rehydrated from it. But what’s it like for others out there? I have been inspired by many of my customers, and here I share their stories. (Please note […]
Another year has gone by. Mother’s Day is around the corner. Those of us fortunate enough to have a special mom, mother-in-law, wife, or grandmother in our lives need to come up with gift ideas. I am confident the special woman in your life owns enough mugs and perfume. I imagine she will not appreciate […]
Today a lovely young bride brought in her finished Afikoman Bag for us to photograph. She is married less than a month, and this is a surprise Passover gift for her husband to use at their first Passover Seder together.

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 […]
