Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Do you make custom stoles?
A. Yes I do!  Check out some of my previous work on the Custom Stole page. I listen to your ideas and needs, offer my own creativity and work with you to accomplish the goal. We are limited only by the availability of fabric and time allotted. 

Q. Will you personalize a stole?
A. Yes! I offer several options for personalizing. If the stole is still under construction, I can embroider a name on the inside. I also offer a post-production dedication option by printing a message on fabric and hand-stitching it to the completed stole. Look for the orange square listed as an item in my shop or contact me through Etsy messages for more information. 

Q. Do you accept tax exempt status? 
A. Yes, Etsy allows for tax exemption when you provide the proper documentation for your city/state. After purchasing your stole, you will apply for reimbursement through this link:

Q. I saw that you have a pocket on your stoles... What's it for?
A. Necessity is the mother of invention, or so they say. I found that there were times when I needed a small place to hold a cough drop, tissue, my glasses or a pen. I've also needed a spot for a microphone pack when I'm not wearing a belt, and if I'm outdoors without a pulpit and want to raise both hands in blessing, I need a place to stash my service notes. So, I designed a small but effective pocket on the inside of my stoles.  I can also include personalization on this pocket if you like. 

Q. Do you offer a discount for quantity purchases.
A. Yes. Please contact me through my Etsy shop for quantity discounts. 


I truly love the pocket with the poems! What a special touch! I’ve never had a stole with a pocket! You are as ingenious as you creative. It felt really special getting a personalized note as well. Beautiful! Thank you!
