The Crosses of Trinity

IMG_0837TheTrinity Needlework Guild celebrates their faith through the needle arts. Their beautiful work is displayed throughout the Cathedral. Look for their touch on seat cushions and kneeling pads in the altar area of the main Cathedral and in Trinity’s various chapels.

We are grateful to the Needlework Guild for putting their loving touch on the Bazaar. In addition to hosting a needlework booth, year-by-year the guild has crafted a series of Christmas ornaments celebrating Trinity’s variety of crosses.

Past years’ ornaments were inspired by the crosses in the cathedral nave and on a gate in Seibel’s Chapel. This year’s cross ornament will be modeled on the Trinity Budded Cross depicted above.

Guild members could use your help – demand is high! They are already hard at work cross-stitching 72 ornaments.

  • Could you pitch in to help make cording (rope ties) and assemble the ornaments?

Attend a workshop where Guild members will show you how. Sign up for a workshop below and you will receive the details.

The Needlework Guild also welcomes church members’ donations of their own handiwork items. Do you knit, crochet, needlepoint, smock, or cross-stich? 

Would you donate one of your items to Bazaar Needlework Booth? Let us know about your donation using the Comments section of the form below.
