Guild of St Clare
At the Towards Advent Festival on Saturday, one of the stalls was for the Guild of St Clare which was set up in 2010 to provide a network of needlewomen to maintain, repair and create vestments. The display was part of the Latin Mass Society stall as the Guild is affiliated to, and sponsored by the Latin Mass Society.
At the moment, there are groups in London, Birmingham and Oxford but I expect that the Guild will grow. It is open to beginners and makes it possible for experts to pass on their skill.
There is a National Training Day on 5 January at Hampton court Palace on "Ecclesiastical Goldwork for Beginners."
For more information, you can browse the Guild blog or email Lucy Shaw.
