Church Needlework - Inspiration, History, Step-by-Step Instructions, and More
English Church Needlework by Maud Hall is a classic reprint offered for those interested in learning how to design, embroider and sew church vestments for themselves and their churches.
English Church Needlework provides inspiration for selecting the proper materials, working with the design, and using the correct stitching techniques. It covers topics relating to frontals, copes, banners, altar linens, and much more.
The revival of Church Needlework and its consequent use in most of the churches of our land - a revival largely brought about by the effect of the Oxford Movement and one which has grown with our Church growth - have brought strongly to the fore, in this our twentieth century, the need of a plain, practical handbook. Art, education, and the capability of women to execute and plan what in earlier years they vaguely wished have caused the imperative demand for handbooks upon all sorts of subjects, particularly those connected with religious art, wherein women, by their money and actual manual aid, have been of so much assistance.
