Additional Links
Decorative work sewn upon cloth. Needlework was used in the decoration of the screens for the tabernacle door (Exodus 26:36; Exodus 36:37 ) and for the gate to its court (Exodus 27:16; Exodus 38:18 ) as well as for Aaron's girdle (Exodus 28:39; Exodus 39:29 ). Needlework was included in the prize spoils of war (Judges 5:30 ) and in lists of luxury items for trade (Ezekiel 27:16 ,Ezekiel 27:16,27:24 ). Embroidered garments were the clothing of royalty (Ezekiel 16:10 ,Ezekiel 16:10,16:13 ,Ezekiel 16:13,16:18; Ezekiel 26:16 ). The mention of material of various colors suggests that some needlework may have involved applique.
