Nestled in the heart of Harlem is a fantastic coffee shop, owned by my brother's friend Aaron, called Lenox Coffee. It opened two years ago and serves a bustling and diverse clientele delicious coffee, espresso beverages, pastries, and other delights seven days a week. Aaron was so enamored with my PATCHWORK ornaments that my brother and Aaron decided that Lenox needed ornaments of its very own. After plenty of deliberation and thousands of teeny-tiny stitches, I give you the Limited Edition 2013 Lenox Coffee Ornament.
Each ornament is constructed with one of four gorgeous plaids from lightly-felted vintage Pendelton kilts. I paired each plaid with its own shade of wool blend felt, which either complements the colors within the plaid, and then stitched onto 100% natural linen. Secured to the top of each stitch is a custom laser-cut insignia with the shop name and date. These ornaments are heirloom quality and will last a lifetime as I painstakingly secure the linen into the embroidery hoops in a manner that will stand the test of time. Each ornament has my logo stamped on the back and is finished off with a piece of rustic twine.
You can get your very own Limited Edition 2013 Lenox Coffee Ornament at Lenox Coffee in Harlem before the end of 2013. Lenox Coffee is located at 60 W 129th St, New York, NY 10027, a few blocks down from the 125th Street subway station.
