In 2011, two additional altar rail kneelers were completed. (See more photos and complete kneeler history HERE.)
Blocking and “finishing” were done by the needlepoint shop, The Designers’ Desk, Geneva, IL. On August 7th, the kneelers were presented to the congregation and blessed by Rev. Conley. The four remaining altar rail kneeler canvases are still in progress.
This year, the guild added four new projects: two acolyte kneelers, the priest’s chair cushion and the priest’s prie-dieu.
Current members are: Patrice Braun, Dinah Hoppe, Mary Keyse, Pat McCullough, Nancy Phillips, Joan Purdy and Nancy Redden.
The guild continues to meet most Thursday mornings (9:30am – noon) at St. Ann’s. New members are welcome.
