Sacred Stitches


At the end of October I caught the last day of Sacred Stitches,


a multi-faith week-long exhibit of ecclesiastical embroideries and textile art to mark the 100th anniversary of the Ecclesiastical Needleworkers of the Diocese of Toronto,held at St James Cathedral, here in Toronto.


My photos do not do this rich exhibition justice as no flash photography was allowed , and anyway, I was too interested in the textiles to think about pics. It was a thrill to see them up close and personal.


   Textile arts from across Canada and all faiths were on display. Rather than me banging on about it you may want to click on some if the links below, much better pictures too.
