The St. Martha’s Guild is a group of parishioners who are working to restore the art of Liturgical needle crafts. In addition to taking care of any mending needs of the parish, members are learning vestment restoration, lace making and repair, several types of embroidery, gold work, fine linen stitching and many other sewing techniques. They are working to revive these waning art forms, and to provide training and support to other embroidery enthusiasts who believe it is important to invest significant effort into items used in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The guild’s website, stmarthasguild.com, organizes a growing collection of resources, tutorials, project specifications and sources of inspiration along with a blog and gallery.
