Ecclesiastical Art Department
Our mission in the Ecclesiastical Art Department (EAD) is to create meaningful liturgical fabric art for use in divine worship. What makes our work distinctive is the particular style of liturgical symbols which decorate the article. This embroidery is done by machine using a combination of hand-guided zigzag and chain stitching techniques. Each design is then couched with gold cord to accentuate the design. We take a limited number of custom orders.
In a spirit of hospitality, we open our EAD workshop is open to visitors, in particular members of churches and needlework groups, who would like the opportunity to see our work in process, as well as tour our chapel and heritage area.

We no longer make Custom-fitted Albs and Altar Linens, but we have trained Lucrecia DaSilva of St. Louis, MO, to make these articles and we refer orders to her. She can be contacted at 314-773-6272.
