From November 6 -8, 2011, I attended the National Conference of the Pomegranate Guild of Judaic Needlework (http://www.pomegranateguild.org) in Westborough, MA. It was wonderful to see my old friends and meet new ones. I taught two classes, showing a total of 19 students how to quill and follow a pattern. Here is the first group working hard (look at the profusion of papers on the table!) and showing off their finished products:
August, 2010 — I am proud to announce that I am one of the artists included in the new book “500 Judaica” , which was just published by Lark Crafts/Sterling Publishing. The book features beautiful color pictures of 500 works of Judaic art, chosen from thousands of submissions. Less then 200 artists from all over the world were selected. My contribution is my quilled bessamin box intended for use during Sukkot. It is made primarily of 23k-gold edged paper, quilled in a three-dimensional form. The box is functional, and features the “Four Species” and a Biblical reference to the holiday of Sukkot.
