Jewish Ritual Textile Art
Lots of non-Jewish quilters have approached me lately to share with me that they have created a Jewish wedding canopy (chuppah) or a prayer shawl (tallit) or a challah cover. It's usually for a friend or a grown child that is marrying someone Jewish or a grandchild that is getting ready for a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. There are some Jewish needlework guilds where sewists can share information. There are lots of people making Jewish fabric art. Let's share it.
For a while I have been thinking that it would be helpful to many people of different faiths to have a place where people could share their creations by posting photos. It could also serve as inspiration and education for others.
So I started a Flickr group. The purpose of this group - Jewish Ritual Textile Art- is for us to share our creations. The photos would be available for everyone to view. I started by posting some of my own work. I hope lots of people follow. So post a photo. Tell anyone and everyone. Let's get some
photos up there. Here's the link. There's no strings attached.
