I was commissioned to make a stole for the new Pastor of Bethany United Methodist Church, Sadie Stone. This is the first one I have ever made. I had to get the base pattern from one that had been worn before. I was given fabrics that I then used to design the stole.
The base fabric was linen, the lining was silk, the various overlays were of cotton. I finished the stole with beads from my collection and the support of silk braid.
Here we are on the Sunday morning when her stole was presented to her.
