Stay on Budget

Sometimes custom work can be expensive. All of our liturgical textiles are created in the US by skilled workers, and very often the more beautiful a stole is, the more time went into it, and it is priced accordingly. But if you see something you love that is out of your price range, give us a chance to customize the design to meet your budget. Some years ago, a client fell in love with this elegant lotus stole, but she didn’t love the price. I was able to create a few different options at a few different price points, by simplifying the design and reducing the amount of time needed to stitch it. In each variation the spirit of the design was intact, as was the customer’s budget.

Look Unified Yet Still Unique

When you have multiple clergy on the altar at the same time, it can be important for their vestments to match, but it can also be desirable to show the individuality of each person.  Our stoles are the perfect solution.  Our Holy Places stoles comprise ten different designs, but they can be made from the same fabric palette, so the finished stoles are one of a kind, but clearly belong together—just like your clergy.

The green and red stoles each have the same base fabric (in this case, each set is made with a base of silk matka) and are made using the same blanket, but each has a distinctive look.

What Inspires Me?

 In August I will celebrate nine years of work as a liturgical artist.  I am lucky to have found a career that allows me to fully engage the creative side of my brain.  I am even luckier that I have found churches and clergy that not only share my taste in what we find beautiful, but are willing and able to invest in new items to enhance their ministries.  Over the years I have been asked where my ideas come from.  I thought it was time to share some of my inspiration.  With this blog, I will post a picture of a finished design and talk about the genesis of the idea and the design process.  I hope you will enjoy getting a deeper understanding of my work.  I also hope it will be worth your time to read it!
