Interfaith art and crafts for religious purposes


Welcome, everyone! Does anyone have any suggestions for links and resources I could put in the user info, or just ideas for adding to or changing the user info come to that? Someone gave a link for a rosary supplier in the previous post, for instance. You could also mention books which may be useful, or other communities which would be good to link to (and if you want to advertise there, please do).

I'm your friendly moderator, and I'll probably co-opt a few more if anyone's interested. Despite practically everyone on jewishwomen having volunteered, I think it'd be good to have mods from other faiths to begin with. I'm Jewish, living in the UK, and I embroider mainly. You can see what I've been working on here: I made myself a tallit [prayer shawl] last summer, and I'm now designing a challah [ritual bread] cloth for my best friend's sister, who's getting married in a couple of months.

links ideas

I'd like to offer a few interesting spaces for art, ritual, inspiration, etc.

http://www.zaadz.com - Dutch for "seeds", it's an interesting place full of inspiring stories and groups.
http://www.spinsterspin.com/taxonomy/term/9 - Crafty Spinster site, with link to podcast about crafting and some great ideas, including the Tiny Little Shrine, which is one of my current obsessions.

http://www.churchofcraft.org - the Church of Craft, a place of worship based on crafts instead of dogma, with several congregations across North America and Europe.
http://www.craftmemo.com - interesting web tool for artists and crafters.
http://www.sewingpatterns.com - just what it looks like. Clearinghouse listing for all sorts of brands of patterns.
http://www.etsy.com - like ebay but for handmade stuff.

Ok, if I get going, I just won't stop. I'll pause now and see if any of that is even relevant. :)

Re: links ideas

You're in as co-mod, what great links.

Anyone other than pagan or Jewish fancy helping co-mod? Catholics, for instance?

Re: links ideas

I think we have our quota of Pagans, but I'm here if you need me
