I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

Ecclesiastical Embroidery Pattern: Crown & Wheat


Amazon Books

Here’s another free embroidery pattern for ecclesiastical embroidery enthusiasts. This one would look great scaled down on smaller linens, or as is on vestments, etc.

I haven’t had the opportunity to work this design, personally, but I’d like to have time to devote to it. I’d love to do it in gold for the front or back of a vestment. The edges of the leaves and the scroll designs coming off the letters would be great for couched gold passing (#5, I’d say). Well, too much to do, too little time to do it….

  1. I was searching for a pattern to embroider on an ordination stole. I found this very one offered on a machine embroidery website. I love it so much, but don’t know where to begin. It’s been many, many years since I’ve done this type of handwork. I intend to reeducate myself with all of your hints & helps. I know I found your website with “special” help from above. Thank you!
