Beryl Dean's book is the classic source of ideas, information, patterns, and inspiration for needleworkers who wish to produce fine vestments and paraments for use in Christian liturgy. Well illustrated, it is the book any clergy person, altar guild, or avid needleworker should keep on hand. Although there are many very well disigned and made factory sets of vestments and hangings available, those created by skilled and knowledgeable designers and embroiderers, especially for the local worshiping community, can give something extra and very special to the celebration of the liturgy. I highly recommend this volume.
