"Nancy did a tremendous job on both of my daughters' tallitot reflecting their similarities and their individual personalities. They are truly a work of art! The tallitot were a great investment -- a part of their bat mitzvahs that they will have for the rest of their lives."
"We wanted to give gifts to our parents on the occasion of our wedding to thank them for their love and support throughout our engagement process. We wanted this gift to be meaningful and to reflect our shared Jewish values as well as our parents' personal interests. We had known about Nancy's work from some congregants at Congregation Kol Shofar in Tiburon, California, and felt that her custom made tallitot perfectly combined these characteristics."
"Working with Nancy in designing the tallitot was a pleasure. She listened to our ideas, asked questions about our parents, and patiently worked with us to choose color palettes and designs that reflected their personalities. We gave the tallitot to our parents before the ketubah signing at our wedding in a private ceremony. It was truly a touching event to give them to our parents, as they had given tallitot to us when we were b'nai mitzvahs years before. We wish that they use them in health and happiness always."

"I get so many compliments every time I wear the tallit that Nancy created for me! But mostly, I love the tallit because it makes me closer to God and helps me to pray better. When I wear it, I feel wrapped in light and holiness."

"A tradition was born when Nancy first designed our niece's Bat Mitzvah tallis. Since then she has designed one for each of our sons and nephew. She engages each child in the design process, relying on her artistic talent and knowledge of Judaism to create a tallis uniquely meaningful to the B'nai Mitzvah. I can't think of a better gift to give or receive."
"Nancy is so incredibly helpful and talented. The process of designing the tallis was made simple and easy. My daughter's tallis is absolutely gorgeous and something she will cherish forever. Thank you Nancy!!"
"It's been more than five years since my son's tallit was made and it is still the most beautiful tallit that I've ever seen. Working with Nancy was a pleasure, from start to finish, for both my 13 year old and me. She was extremely patient with him, explaining and showing the various design options and respectfully helping him to make decisions. The tallit was completed in a timely fashion and her silk painting far exceeded our expectations. The process of creating a custom tallit with Nancy was one of the more meaningful Steps in the whole Bar Mitzvah process."
