Jewish sewing patternsThe Sew Jewish book is now available in paperback! Yeah! After the PDF version came out, so many readers asked about getting a physical book, especially to give as gifts, that I plunged in to figure out how to make it happen. I’m so grateful for everyone’s interest and support.

The paperback version is now available online at and Indiebound.

The original PDF format continues to be available in the Sew Jewish shop.

Sew Jewish is a collection of the core Jewish sewing projects that any sewing enthusiast would want on their shelf: a tallit, wedding chuppah, baby blanket –18 projects altogether.

Here’s the text of the back cover:
