Vestment Making Seminars

Many people have asked for a class to learn how to make their first vestment. We started offering seminars. Everyone enjoyed the classes, learned a lot, and left with a beautiful set of Latin or Gothic vestments or a Dalmatic. Unfortunately due to closing the house in New York and moving back to the motherhouse in Louisiana we have to discontinue the regularly scheduled seminars.  Perhaps they will be offered again in future from Louisiana.

 We still can offer (for the time being) one on one classes.  You must contact Sister Mary John and set it up.  

 In the meantime we suggest that you take one of the online courses we offer. 
 The vestment pictured is the style you will be making. These classes will teach you:

  • How to make your own fabric orphrey.
  • How to apply trim and get it straight.
  • Getting the vestment to lay right
  • Putting in lining the easy and foolproof way (if it is a lined vestment)
  • Tips and tricks of the trade.
  • Burse construction.

 I will also be offering the other seminars online as well in the near future.
