St. Martha's Guild

096a st marthas guild headerSt. Martha's Guild is a group of women from St. John Cantius Church who are attempting to revive the art of liturgical embroidery and needle crafts by learning these art forms and teaching them to anyone that can be enticed into our lively sewing circle. It is a very intimidating and lovely pursuit that enriches and feeds our affection for beauty, while at the same time often forcing an increase in patience and humility. We meet weekly to inch our way forward in this journey working on each new skill and taking care of any mending needs for the parish.
The guild's website grew out of a need to store our growing collection of resources, tutorials, project specifications and sources of inspiration in one central place. It is very much a work in progress. Be sure to explore the gallery where you can see some of the treasured vestments at St. John Cantius. You'll get a rare up-close and personal view.
