Custom designed vestments and altar appointments economically priced - a unique approach since 1989


Chasubles are a cape-like worship garment, worn during the celebration of the Eucharist. In some churches they are worn throughout the service; in others they may only be used during the liturgy of the table or not worn at all. The color and use of symbols is related to the liturgical season in which the chasuble is being worn. Quite often the altar and lectern hangings, other altar appointments and sometimes banners, will coordinate with the symbols found on the chasuble. The following chasubles are one-of-a-kind projects from my portfolio collection.

These photographs represent examples of my work. Each chasuble is custom designed and sized. Symbols are chosen and fabric selected by the client and myself. No two are exactly alike; this is part of my gift to you. I will duplicate concepts upon request.
