The New Church Year Begins December 2, 2018

The New Church Year begins with the Penitential season of Advent on December 2, 2018. There are two main liturgical colors used for the season of Advent: they are blue and violet.

The blues used for Advent come in a wide range of colors ranging from bright royal to muted Sarum colors.

There are several options of a bright or royal blue Liturgical Brocades. The above fabric is the Luther Rose Brocade. The fabric is our exclusive design. It makes up beautifully in stoles, chasubles, and altar hangings.


Another favorite is the St. Margaret Brocade with the lovely crown and Tudor Rose motifs amid scrollwork. It is available in blue,

Blue/Gold and

and in a deep, rich violet color.

The St. Margaret Brocade is a richly detailed fabric that features design motifs of a crown surrounded by leaves and a scroll border.

We have a few St. Margaret and Blue Luther Rose projects in the works over the next several weeks, and we are looking forward to seeing the results. One of the projects is for my home church which is always special. We shall try our best to keep everyone updated with photos.

Two of the blue St. Margaret fabrics are being hooped for embroidery this weekend.

The above photo is the St. Margaret being placed in the large embroidery frame. We are blessed to have a rather large embroidery frame that can handle designs up to 12.75″ wide and up to 46″ long. That allows for all sorts of options. The design for this stole will be on the machine for about 8 to 10 hours if all goes well………………….. and then there is a chasuble orphrey that will take 15 to 20 hours on the machine. Let’s pray that all goes well because there are many more projects waiting in the wings!

Soli Deo Gloria
