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.

Some of us are artistically challenged :)

For our wedding, we exchanged "favours" (as in the pieces of fabric - like on the movie Braveheart) rather than rings, and we did those by hand. They were cross stitch sewn onto velvet. Mine was a basic design, but hubby did an eagle he designed by hand. I was very impressed.

I made him a pouch to hold his dice one year, and I did his name on the front with cross stitch, but I cheated - I printed out the name on paper and while it was wet I pressed it against the cloth to give a bit of a guide of where to go :)
