holiday season. Just outside of DC, located in the Mosaic District in
Merrifield, we’re offering your favorite needlepoint styles as well as some
items exclusive to the store. The pop-up is open seven days a week and is
filled with great holiday gifts at every price point. The store carries a wide
variety of our signature needlepoint belts and accessories, including our
officially licensed MLB and collegiate collection.
The stress of finding the perfect gift can be overwhelming,
and we’re here to help! With so many choices being offered at our store, there
really is something for everyone. We’re very excited to share this experience
with our customers and we thank all of you for your support over the

Our initial offering will include memorabilia for
the Braves, Orioles, Red Sox, Cubs, Reds, Tigers, Twins, Mets, Yankees,
Phillies, Cardinals, Rangers and Nationals.We launched the accessories earlier this month and you can be on the

Our annual office outing to a Washington National game.
It’s been a busy fall for the S&B office and the pace
doesn’t seem to be slowing down.As we
enter the bustling holiday season, we’re grateful to be a part of our
customers’ gift giving traditions. We truly are amazed at how many stockings
will be stuffed and trees will be lined with S&B gift boxes this year.We know that it’s hard to find the perfect
gift for our loved ones and we thank you all for choosing the gift of
needlepoint.However, the S&B
packages aren’t the only things shipping all over the country these next few
weeks. While some of us are staying put
in Washington D.C., many others will travel near and far to
celebrate with family and friends.
So where in the world will the S&B team spend the holidays? Our office front man, fondly known as “Old Greg,” is headed to
Michigan to see his friends and family. Our Southern belle, Kathleen, heads
home to Jacksonville, Florida for some fun in the sun.Jaci will have the quintessential Christmas
with a visit to New York City and will
undoubtedly visit Rockefeller
Center for some ice
skating and to see the tree.Peter is
traveling the farthest to surprise his adorable twin nieces in London.His only challenge is finding a gift box to
jump out of that will fit his 6’3” frame!Washington D.C. native, Andrew, will spend the holiday nearby enjoying
his family tradition of watching Christmas Vacation on Christmas Eve before he heads
south to Florida for a few rounds of golf before the New Year.
No matter where you are this month, we wish you all a Happy
Holiday and wonderful New Year!
