I married into a Jewish family in my 40s. Growing up I had played the Dreidel game and heard the story of Hanukkah at school but it wasn't until I experienced Hanukkah first hand that I had a full appreciation for the holiday.
I love the focus on spending time with family and the tradition of lighting the candles on the Menorah – symbolizing the oil that should have lasted only a day, lasting for 8 nights. The simple colors and intricate patterns speak to me as an artist.
I am excited to share the “Festival of Lights” fabric collection and hope that the patterns and imagery capture the spirit of Hanukkah for you and your family as well.
Watch the video to see the fabrics, upcoming projects and a few shenanigans at the end!
Prints Included in the Collection
With 8 prints and a table runner panel this is a versatile collection of prints for all your Hanukkah sewing!
Here are some of the projects I'll be sharing once the fabric ships in July 2020 through the fall to help you find lots of ways to use your Festival of Lights fabric!
Hanukkah Menorah and Dreidel Throw
The pattern for this 40 x 60″ throw will be available when the Festival of Lights fabric has shipped!
I hope you enjoyed this preview of Hanukkah things to come – I'm excited to see what you create!
