Needlepoint Project Continues
 
The newly completed needlepoint Wedding Kneeler, stitched by Mollie Turner, has arrived.  As you can see from the picture, it is absolutely beautiful and is ready to be used at weddings in Bruton Parish Church.  In the near future, we will display it so that all will see how exquisite it is.
    We also recently received four newly designed canvases for the chair seats in the Rector's Pew.  These chairs seats are the next phase of the Needlepoint project started as part of our 300th Anniversary Celebration.  The nine altar rail kneelers, which were the first phase of the Needlepoint project, have added to the beauty and comfort at our communion rail.
    For the seats in the Rector's pew, our rector, Chris Epperson, recommended we use the symbols of the four apostles, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John on the chair seat canvases. Each symbol is surrounded by a blue shaded damask background, color-coordinated with the background of the altar rail kneelers.
    We would like to thank the many generous donors who have already supported this next phase of the Needlepoint project. We give special thanks to the member who donated the entire cost for one of the cushions in honor of her mother who loved to needlepoint and appreciated its beauty in a church setting.  We hope that anyone who is interested in supporting this project will use the card below to donate in honor or in memory of someone.
    If you should have any questions, please contact Marty Jones (757-810-4293) or Isabel Burch (757-253-0074) or send an email to needlepoint@brutonparish.org.
    The chair canvases are to be stitched by Sally Riley - St. Matthew, Barbie Siegel - St. John, Toni Webb - St. Mark, and Grace Martien - St. Luke (click here for the February issue of The Chronicle to see pictures of the wedding kneeler and seats in the rector's pew).
    If you’d like to make a monetary donation to the project, you may do so online through Tithely by visiting www.bit.ly/GIVE2BPC or print and complete the pledge card in the February Chronicle and return it to the Parish House.
