Default Jewish Needlework

Hi all! I am a longtime RCTN reader, but I haven't kept up for a year
or so. So I am sure this has been asked and answered before, but
please forgive me. I have a friend whose grandson will be Bar
Mitzvah'd next spring and she would like to embroider a tallit for
him. But she can't find any needlepoint, cross-stitch, etc. patterns.
I am sure there must be someone out there who has a source for Jewish
themed patterns. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.... Ellen

This is a good site. Also, try the Pomegranate Guild (guild for Jewish
needleworkers). They have links for Jewish Needlework, as well as a section
with ads that members can put on the web site. It's probably the best place
to look, centrally.

http://www.pomegranateguild.org/index.html

Susan Roberts does a lot of Judaica in needlepoint.

I also do some, (thru my design company) and have done some custom tallit
neckbands (painted). If you want to contact me directly, that's fine. But if
your friend is looking for something immediately - honestly, I'm busy
getting spring designs ready for the January trade show. Normally I need a
couple of weeks to do one. Also, the web-site just moved servers, and I have
it down for another week.
