Do you remember the good old days when sending a package was not too expensive?

We remember. 23 years ago our first Gazelles Needlework Stands were much simpler affairs and sold for $70.00. Shipping was maybe $5.00.  Sure - we could have sold them for $75.00 and called shipping free, but “free” is the most pervasive oxymoron.

United Parcel Service always has a 4% to 5 % increase every year.  That alone has tripled the rate we pay since we started in 1991.  Meanwhile - over the last two years the US Postal service fell behind on rate increases; we began shipping much via the Post office.  But on Monday February 1 2016 we received notification that the US Postal Service has upped it’d hamburger pricing to filet mignon rates only two weeks after a 2 day premium US Postal Service priority shipment of a quilt to our daughter arrived after 9 days in transit.

In addition the term “dimensional weight” has rewritten the rules of shipping. A seven pound parcel in a large box may be given a dimensional weight of sixteen pounds.  Our only choice is to make sure shipping rates cover our actual costs.  They have not for the last three years.   Only our smallest parcels now ship by actual weight.

We can no longer absorb the additional costs and must now pass them on.

We hope you will understand.

What’s in a name?

When do body aches, debilitating pain and eyestrain of due to repetitive tasks become unacceptable?  Is it when one needs surgical remedy?

The U. S. Government created OSHA - the Occupational Health and Safety Administration - to establish standards for safety and health in the workplace. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome has ruined many a career; it is but one of hundreds of physiological health hazards.

Artisan Design has always been about the role comfort plays in making needlework both productive and enjoyable. It’s about proficiency as well as posture and motion. 

Our needlework stands allow you to relax comfortably without twisting, leaning, bending, or stretching while stitching.   Fabric or frame weight and position is held by mechanical means, not your hand, arm and shoulder. 

Lokscroll provides quick, secure attachment without the need for sewing your workpiece in place.

Our product are designed to help you gain proficiency, avoid stress, and enjoy an altogether better stitching experience.

Israel adopted the Gazelle as it’s symbol when it was founded in 1948 because it represents the struggle to survive and the will to prosper in an unforgiving  world.

That is also a fair assessment of our “Gazelle”.

An “Artisan” is a person gifted in industrial arts.

 “Ergo” - Ergonomics: Science of the physical relationship between humans and machine.

“Elan” Youthful verve and exuberance
