Tag: Martin Mannequin

Meet Martin the Mannequin! He was purchased from a fashion gallery and shipped to Ecclesiastical Sewing in Northern Minnesota to be used as a fashion form for trying on vestments. Not a fan of the cold or the small-town vibes, Martin struggles to adapt to his new job.

Ecclesiastical Sewing sewing studio, specializing in creating beautiful vestments for churches, features Martin Mannequin as its star attraction. We use Martin’s perfectly proportioned body and flexible joints to create intricate and ornate vestments that meet clients’ needs.

Martin, accustomed to exact measurements, has been a part of Ecclesiastical Sewing for years, witnessing numerous creative processes. The team has adorned him in luxurious fabrics, decorated with intricate embroidery. Martin is not merely a mannequin; he is a work of art and takes pride in being a part of Ecclesiastical Sewing’s legacy of excellence.

Meet Martin the Steadfast

There is a new man in the Ecclesiastical Sewing workroom of late. He is on duty, 24/7, never leaving his post. He never complains, or tires of his duty.  He responds to my beck and call.  He stands to guard over my vintage liturgical sewing library, keeping harm and danger at bay. He has been hanging around for several months now, not doing much of anything…..sometimes he is in the way and gets shoved or pushed, but he takes it in stride.  He is tall and well-built.
