2014 Needlework and The Stock Market

A timely heads up: Laura and I are taking personal time in late April, late May and early July. If we don’t answer the phone, leave only your name and number; we’ll call you promptly upon our return for details.   Paypal orders may be delayed as much as 5 working days.

Every day here is spent (invested) in my two favorite things: needlework tools (Gazelle2, Ergo, Elan, Lokscroll, etc.) and building a retirement fund. Earning a living managing equities is time consuming but yields rewards not possible within the financial limitations of a mom and pop at home woodworking business.  It makes possible our goal is to enjoy retirement while continuing to serve needleworkers now and many years into the future.

After years without vacations we decided it was time to learn to enjoy each other, our families, and our friends.   We are enabling ourselves toward having the time and flexibility to be able to spend more time with those we love. 

Your good faith, kind consideration, and patronage has continuously fueled our enthusiasm for sustaining Artisan Design as long as we are able; a productive retirement doing what one loves is a rare and beautiful thing.

Thank you so much  - Sheldon and Laura.

What’s in a name?

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


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.
