Liturgical Brocatelle Fabrics for Making Church Vestments
There are so many Liturgical Fabrics that are a favorite, and St. Hubert’s ranks among the top of all fabrics as one of our favorites at the Ecclesiastical Sewing.com online store front. St. Hubert is a historic fabric that dates back to the 1800’s. St. Hubert has undergone a few minor changes over the past century, such as reducing the size of the main motif so it is more “user-friendly” for making orphrey bands, apparels, and stoles. The design is not an “even” pattern, and so takes a bit of getting used to when working with it for the first few times. Trying to see where to place cutting lines is a bit of a challenge. But in time the pattern sorts itself out, and it becomes easier to figure out how to work with a design that is not symmetrical. I have written about St. Hubert’s in the past, and will continue to post about the fabric the next time it is used for a project. But for this evening, I hope you will enjoy some the beautiful colors used in the weaving of St. Hubert’s Liturgical fabric.
St. Hubert is a metallic fabric available in white/gold, red/gold, blue/gold, gold/gold and black/gold color combinations. It works up well as a trim or orphrey for stoles, altar frontals, copes, dalmatics, tunics, and chasubles.*
St. Hubert has been paired with the Ivory Lurex St. Margaret for a festive frontal used for both Easter and Christmas (and for a New Year’s Wedding). The orphrey bands and superfrontal feature the gold/gold St. Hubert Liturgical Brocatelle Fabric, edged with gold oak leaf galloon.
The St. Margaret Liturgical Brocade Fabric in ivory/lurex is a one of a kind fabric that features a very subtle touch of gold threads which are used to weave the main design elements of the Tudor Rose and Crown. This masterful weaving combination creates a unique fabric that is deceptive upon first appearances, but is sure to capture both ones attention and imagination with thought on how to incorporate this fabric into countless design possibilities.
St. Hubert is available now online through Ecclesiastical Sewing.
