Jewish Sewing Books for Your Gift and Wish Lists

As we roll into the holiday season, here are some book recommendatins for the Jewish sewists in your life — and for your own wish list! Full disclosure, the Amazon and IndieBound links are affiliate links, and they’re books I bought for my own shelf. There’s plenty here to inspire and keep a sewist busy all year long:

The Uncommon Yarmulke by Pomegranate Guild President Cathy Perlmutter, available at her site, Judaiquilt.

The Quilting Path Louise Silk

The Quilting Path: A Guide to Spiritual Discovery Through Fabric, Thread and Kabbalah by Louise Silk. On Amazon and IndieBound.

The New Work of Our Hands: Contemporary Jewish Needlework and Quilts Paperback by Mae Rockland Tupa. On Amazon.

Sew Jewish 18 Projects

My own humble addition to the Jewish sewing book collection: Sew Jewish: The 18 Projects You Need for Jewish Holidays, Weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvah Celebrations, and Home. On Amazon and IndieBound. Also available in PDF format.
