The stole is just beautiful! It curves around the back of my neck and lies perfectly flat in front. Beautifully, professionally made, and shipped practically before I bought it. :) Thank you for the excellent product and excellent service!

About

One Stole at a Time

Serendipity Clergy Stoles is a one-woman liturgical art ministry, which began in 2008. Since then I have sold over 1000 stoles. I offer pulpit and deacon stoles in multiple styles, with design offerings from simple symbols to more complex theological art stoles.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT SERENDIPITY CLERGY STOLES?

QUALITY
Clergy stoles require an advanced set of tailoring skills for a professional outcome. All of my stoles are stabilized with interfacing for best drape, and constructed using advanced tailoring techniques to ensure straight, smooth seams and crisp corners. The patterns I use to make the stoles are of my own engineering, based on feedback I have received over the years. Each stole comes with care instructions, typically on the brand label at the neck.

ART AND AUTHENTICITY
All of the designs found in this shop are original designs by the artist. Each piece is hand drawn from handmade patterns, and then hand cut individually. The machine stitching around the pieces is entirely manual, not computerized.

MISSION STATEMENT
The purpose of this ministry is to honor Christ in all aspects of work, particularly:

In the use of my God-given gifts in the creation of items of beauty intended for the exclusive worship of Christ, and for ministering in Christ's name.

In my commitment to what is essential Christian doctrinal orthodoxy.
In the quality of my work.
In the service I provide to clergy.
In the way I balance the needs of my family with the demands of work.
In the observance of Sabbath rest, and other regular times of spiritual and physical renewal.


Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as though you were working for the Lord and not for people. Remember that the Lord will give you as a reward what he has kept for his people. For Christ is the real Master you serve. Colossians 3:23-24

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Due to a very full order schedule and complications with custom designing, I do not accept custom orders. To see my full selection go to www.serendipityclergystoles.com

Sizing details

Sizes are clear in the listings. For helpful information on choosing a size go to: http://www.serendipityclergystoles.com/Measure-for-a-Clergy-Stole_ep_46.html

Care instructions

The best cleaning care is prevention, but if your stole is soiled, it is best to spot clean your stoles with something like a "Tide-to-Go" pen. If you really need to launder your stole, dry cleaning is recommended to retain shape. Many stoles can be hand washed in cold water, and reshaped.

Gift wrapping and packaging

You can add a label with a personal message when you purchase a stole on my website. www.serendipityclergystoles.com
