Intertwined is a sewing cooperative of five refugee women living in Knoxville, TN. The women have been sewing together for about a year and meet three days a week to sew and learn English, finances, and design as they adapt to life in America. The creativity of sewing and patchwork empowers the women and helps them process the turbulent events they experienced in their home countries. Intertwined recently opened their Etsy shop. Nearly all of the materials the members sew with are donated which means a significant portion of the profits go directly to the sewists’ families.
Intertwined is giving away two 18″ patchwork pillow covers, valued at $40 each, in colors customizable by the recipient.
Handmade by refugee women living in Knoxville, TN! Just in time for fall… These autumn patchwork and quilted pillow covers incorporate new and vintage fabrics from our extensive collection of donated materials. Also available in your own custom color choice.
The Original Dog Tarot: Divine the Canine Mind! (US Winners Only)
Author: Heidi Schulman
Publisher: Potter Style
Want to know why your dog shreds your slippers but ignores his designer toys? Does your pooch really want a puppy for companionship, or are you delusional? The Original Dog Tarot is an entertaining, tongue-in-jowl deck of tarot cards and accompanying book affectionately written for dog lovers who want to divine their canine’s mind. The 30 cards are a takeoff on the traditional tarot; they’re divided into the Major Barkana and Minor Barkana. Each card offers advice for both canines and the humans in their lives. You don’t have to be familiar with traditional tarot to use this deck. It is a witty and wise stand-alone oracle for anyone who has given up mastering the techniques of The Dog Whisperer.
