White and Gold for Easter and Christmas

Easter and Christmas are the highest festivals in the church year. The vestments worn by clergy and used in the church are often decorated with white and gold for Easter and Christmas.

Last Christmas, Ecclesiastical Sewing introduced a design collection entitled Dayspring. The collection features timeless and elegant designs created by our liturgical artist friend, Edward Riojas. The collection features a variety of design themes that symbolize both the Nativity of Christ and His Resurrection.  The designs were gold threads stitched on white paraments and vestments.

Liturgical Design Collection

Below are a few examples of designs in the collection. Some of the designs are still in the works, while others have become firm favorites.

We have created several stoles, but many additional options are just waiting for someone to select the design and bring them to life.

The Pomegranate design above is another symbol used for Christ and His Resurrection. This design has been waiting in the wings to be selected and stitched. It was stitched for the first time about 2 weeks ago and we are thrilled with the results!

The design is stunning! It combines two shades of gold in a rich combination that shimmers. Travis did a wonderful job with the machine and making suggestions for thread colors. We hope the church receiving this will enjoy it.
