Making Eucharistic Vestments
On a Limited Budget
Linda C Hall
1985, New Spiralbound Softcover, 48pp.
Introduction: This handbook is written for those who want to make good, simple vestments for their churches. It is a collection of information and instructions from various sources, and is offered in an attempt to help beginners avoid some of the pitfalls that await the maker of vestments.

The principles and techniques recommended in this book are applicable to various styles of vestments, whether "traditional" or "contemporary" in spirit.

For very little money, but with the cooperation of several needleworkers, a church can have a simple, practical wardrobe of vestments in the historic forms. Each church can have its own distinctive spirit expressed in its vestments, reflecting the specialized ministry of the congregation. This individual identity will be created largely by the choice of fabrics and their decoration, and by the liturgical use to which the vestments are put.

Advice will be given first on planning the number, kinds, and design of the vestments needed for the church that has only limited funds for these things. Then, detailed instructions will be given for making each kind of vestment.
