Choose from my library of embroidery designs including words, images and clergy symbols. 

Create a special stole for yourself or for a gift by including unique embroidery features.

I can also create custom embroidery by digitizing your logo or design and then stitching it onto the stole. 

Pieced Stole

I use more than 30 different fabrics of each color to construct the cloth of these stoles.  The three-color cross is embedded into the mosaic fabric design. 

Woven Stole

I weave individual strips of batik fabrics to create the cloth to make the stole. You will help me select the fabric colors to represent significant events or other memories.  

As an added finishing touch, I can quilt words into the final layer of the stole.  

Finding Perfect Fabric

Do you have a specific image in mind? Tell me about it and I'll hunt for the fabric to meet your needs. A chaplain once asked me to find starfish fabric because the classic story of a child saving starfish one at a time reminded her to be fully present with each and every person she served. 


I was asked to officiate at a friend's wedding so I found a vintage Japanese wedding Obi sash and went about finding someone who could turn it into a clerical stole. I landed on Joy's site, loved her work and she masterfully turned this antique champagne sash into a work of art--elegant and clearly made with love. Don't hesitate to contact her should you want something either from her site or custom--you will be delighted with her work.
