The Guild was given a white faldstool cover, made by Serpone in Rome, to copy. The original used mainly machine techniques, so we adapted the design and made a hand-stitched version.
|We added velvet piping to the cushion; the sumptuous effect is well worth the time it took to put in|
The fabric is Winchester brocade, supplied by Watts & Co., and the braid has an oak leaf design and comes from M. Perkins.
It will be an honour to see this in use for Cardinal Burke's visit.
