Liturgical Stole Series

Liturgical stoles commissioned by Rev. Sue Joiner, pastor of First Congregational UCC Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  What an honor and a challenge create these fabric prayers to honor my dear friend Sue’s ministry and to bless her congregation!  Click to enlarge photos below.

I’m not currently making stoles for sale.  See comments below for information on the pattern I used for the stole shape.

    These are really beautiful. I am a pastor in the Denver Colorado area. Do you sell these?

    Melanie –
    I love your work are you making stoles at this time?

      Thank you, Demetrio. I’m grateful for your encouragement, yet I am still not making stoles at this time. I recommend using the search term “liturgical stoles” at to find another artist/tailor for your project. Blessings to you!
