Agnus Dei Kneeler

26.5 by 12 by 3 inches

This needlepoint kneeler is one of a set of 18, with backgrounds derived from the beautiful stained glass in that church, and was dedicated in December 2008.

Starting with my first design project for my own church in 1989, all of my work is specific to the site, and includes design elements already in the church. In the intervening years I have gained valuable experience in the full life cycle of ecclesiastical needlepoint; custom designs, fund-raising, teaching, lecturing, finishing, re-finishing, and restoration. It is a wonderful second career!
