Cathedral vergers and altar guild: Vestments Project

Can you sew? Are you handy with a needle, or maybe a pair of scissors?

Would you like to know what a galloon or an orphrey is?

The cathedral vergers and Altar Guild are asking for your help as we finish up the inventory and cataloging of the cathedral's vast collection of vestments. Each piece - over 200 of them - will be getting an inventory tag sewed into its lining. And since many hands make short work, your help is needed!

Many of our vestments have been memorialized - that is, congregants have given a set or a part of a set in memory of a loved one - and they are in need of ongoing care and maintenance. Part of this stewardship is to keep track of when various pieces in our collection have been bought, cleaned, or repaired.

So come join us on Saturday morning, February 18th at 10am in the undercroft for coffee and some light sewing. We hope to see you there!
