Holy Stitching!

I was amazed and awed to explore the needlepoint in Winchester Cathedral. There are some wonderful pieces of ecclesiastical art here.  If you are going to England and can manage a side visit to Winchester, please take a LOT of photographs!

Part of the charm of kneelers and altar clothes is the rich imagery dedicated stitchers add to each piece.  We are lucky that Joan Eidman happens to be working with a local group to design pieces for their holy place and is willing to describe what they are doing in Houston.

These are amazing stitchers with amazing dedication.
