  • Jewish Knots and Braiding Projects


  • Tallit Knot Tying (Jewish Prayer Shawls)

  • Make your own tallit?
  • Many Jewish Camps, Schools, Scouts etc. teach how to braid hemp or gymp.
    My son's Sunday school made their own Tallit!
    This tallit was to be used in prayers before Sunday school. (so really informal)
    The choices for material were very unique.
    I have since seen great material at Judaica 1-800-Dreidel.com and kits at Artkitsetc.com.
    See my Make your own tallit page for more links for supplies and knotting directions.
    I highly recommend this project but if you are not ready for this yet, how about learning to tie the tallis/tallit strings as a great heritage project instead of just playing around?
    Artkitsetc has strings and directions in an inexpensive kit form.

  • Make your own Tallit for real?

  • Many Sisterhoods, Temples etc are having classes on making your own tallit.
    If you need guidance check out the companies for kits and directions on my Jewish resource page.

    GIMP, Gymp, Plastic Lacing,
    Lanyard, Boondoggling:


    Margo of Beadie Critter Fame reminded me to include one of my personal old favorites of gymp/lanyard.

    Before the craze for hemp braiding there was lanyard or gimp.
    An old favorite for camps and scouts that is now hot again thanks to the many new books available at craft stores showing how to add beads, make animals and weaving into other projects.
    My campers especially liked the new Mega gymp available at many craft stores.
    Extra wide and easier for some to use.
    It comes in great glow in the dark colors and with patterns.
    Although the patterns are on one side and therefore show up in unexpected colors from the back side of the gymp.

    I have had a few people tell me they have had trouble finding supplies on line and no stores near by see new updated links below.

    I used a lot of my thin gymp (regular gymp compared to Mega gymp) on in beadie animal projects.
    It is easier for many children to use.
    I describe on my beadie page that wide beadie animals will bend with gymp.

    I have since then received a suggestion from Tessa Moulyn of Canada
    that she steams her projects using a warm iron and a damp cloth. Sounds great! Thanks Tessa.
