Diana Drew of Randolph gave a presentation and Feelie Heart-making workshop on Dec. 11 as part of the Life Long Learning program at the Goldberg Judaic Study Center in Temple Shalom in Succasunna. The presentation focused on Drew's new book, "Jewish Threads: A Hands-On Guide to Stitching Spiritual Intention into Jewish Fabric Crafts" (Jewish Lights Publishing), written together with Robert Grayson, also of Randolph, who joined Drew at the podium. After the talk, everyone made fleece Feelie Hearts — soft, stuffed hearts given to grieving children. A Feelie Hearts sewing circle with members of National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW), West Morris Section, of which Drew serves as co-president, was one of the projects that inspired the authors to write the book.
