Advanced Stole Making Class Saturday 02/18/2017
Brand Ecclesiastical Sewing
We are delighted to have you come and learn this traditional art of vestment making Ecclesiastical Sewing is committed to educating people and handing down the skill of making beautiful pieces for the church. For anyone who wishes to learn more complicated techniques, we will offer this advanced stole making class. In this class we will be using Lichfield fabric and covering topics like orphrey bands, embroidery, tassels, & trim. The cost for the advanced class is $125 and please be sure to bring the pattern you received from the beginner class. Otherwise patterns are available for purchase for $22. Details about the advanced class will be shared at the beginner classes. In both levels of classes, attendees will walk away with a completed, usable stole, although the first is more of a practice stole. Once our students master the art of sewing a stole in this series of classes, they will be able to use their knowledge to make any number of stoles for their congregation, relatives or friends who are pastors, or donate made stoles to seminary for graduating clergy.
If you feel that you are an expert seamstress or tailer, you can contact Carrie about only doing the advanced class. We do recommend, however, that you get your bearings and basic knowledge of how to construct a stole from the beginner class first.
If this class is not available, that means it is sold out. You can enter your information in the waitlist section and we will contact you about a future class date.
