Hi! I’m Maria Bywater, the author of Sew Jewish and a 2016-2017 JBC Network Author. I’d love to lead a hands-on workshop in your community and inspire members of your community to engage in Jewish life through our rich tradition of Jewish needlecrafts.
Participants have fun creating Jewish-themed projects while learning beginner sewing and embroidery skills. Workshops use ready-made material kits, and most projects are designed so that they can be completed one session of 1.5-2 hours. The hand-made tallit class takes place over several session. See all the projects.
If your organization is a member of the Jewish Book Council Network Author Tour, contact the JBC to arrange a hands-on workshop.
The kits are also available to purchase if you’d like to plan a workshop with your own local instructor.
