Dedication Service Of New Green Vestments June 10, 2015 11:21
Today was the unveiling of the new set of green vestmements for St Andrew's Church, Compton Dundon, Somerset. I joined the congregation to celebrate the blessing of the new textiles in a special service in order to dedicate them to the church.
18 months ago I was asked to design, stitch and create a new altar frontal, burse, veil, stole, chasuble, lectern fall and two collection bags.
The two side panels of the altar frontal were created as a community project. A total of 10 hardworking ladies were involved in the process, each producing a few of the embroidered leaves.
Official photographs of each of the pieces will follow shortly!
