Because this was a gift mailed directly to the recipients, I can't comment on the pouch itself, but Lois was very communicative and helpful to work with.

Beautiful custom piece! I love it! Lois found some fabric and used custom silver ink and I couldn't be happier. Used it this year and will use it every Passover now. Both simple and elegant.

About

Art that celebrates the threads of spirit that connect us all.

Weaver, dyer, seamstress - Creator of Ceremonial Cloths, that’s me. I began this journey by earning my Girl Scout embroidery badge and weaving on a looper loom and continued on through a bachelor’s degree and more recently a certificate in fiber arts. Textiles and fiber processes are my passion.

Ceremonial Cloths: I combine my passion for textiles with my love and deep connection with Divine Spirit. This work provides me the opportunity to be of service to both my customers and Spirit by creating pieces that I hope will inspire connections between the two. This is the work of my heart.

Is there is a cloth you want and cannot find? I can help you manifest your vision. By intertwining the skills I have been gifted with your ideas, I strive to create a framework for you to connect with Spirit, as you see it.

Weaving: The interlacement of threads to create cloth is one of humanity’s oldest endeavors. I am honored to be part of this ancient tradition. I have two large floor looms (one 4-harness and one 8-harness), a 4-harness table loom, and several smaller looms as well. On these I weave my tallit, atarah bands and other cloth.

Dyeing: Using fiber-reactive dyes gives me the opportunity to play with color, either by dyeing the warp threads before they are woven (tallit) or dying purchased cloth (challah covers).

Sewing: This is the first skill I learned as a child and have practiced my whole life. Over the years I have sewn everything from garments to tents and every type of fabric from the finest silks to heavy canvas and vinyl. So rest assured, anything I sew will be professionally done.

The jewelry I make for fun, and it gives me an excuse to buy beads.

Payment
METHODS OF PAYMENT: I accept Paypal, Money orders, and cashier's checks (bank checks). 



SALES TAX: Washington State residents will have to pay sales tax. The rate of 9.5% (for most of King County) will be added to your bill during the checkout process in Paypal. Washington state requires the tax to be calculated according to where the goods are delivered, so if you live in a different part of the state, when I get your address I will revise your bill or give you a refund through paypal. If you're paying by bank check or money order, please contact me so that I can send you a revised invoice reflecting the correct tax.

NON-PAYMENT: 
Payment by PayPal is expected immediately after placing the order and payment by money order must be mailed within 3 days. Please let me know when a money order or bank check is sent. If payment is not received in a timely manner and if you do not respond to my emails, the transaction will be canceled.
Shipping
I will ship your purchase by USPS First Class or Priority Mail within 3 business days after payment is received (custom orders may take longer). I add tracking to most packages, and insurance for items over $100. If you have other needs, please let me know. Please contact me to verify international shipping costs and requirements.

July 25, 2016 - Canadian Customers, we have been informed that contract negotiations are in process between Canada Post and the union, and mail is being processed and delivered as normal, so if you wish to order something now, we should be fine. Thanks for your patience, and hopefully this will be resolved soon.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you wish to return or exchange an item, please contact me within 2 weeks of your purchase. Items returned must be in like-new condition, and refunds do not include shipping costs. I appreciate my customers very much, and want them to be happy.
Additional policies and FAQs
Your custom requests are welcome. I will contact you by email to determine the details (design, schedule, etc.). Payment is required upon mutual agreement of custom design requests. Work will begin after payment is received. I will send you an email to let you know when the item has been shipped, and when to expect it.



PLEASE NOTE: Because of the time and effort involved, custom orders are not returnable.

FEEDBACK: I love to get feedback, but I understand that many buyers prefer not to leave it. I respect buyers' privacy, and the decision to leave feedback is happily up to you. Additionally, I would love to know how you found me! Let me know in an e-mail or convo, will you?
