Welcome to Chantal Artisans
An Apostolate of the Sisters of the Visitation of Holy Mary in Tyringham, Massachusetts
We have been blessed with many talented women who generously dedicate their talents and gifts for the benefit of our community. Each Sister within the monastery contributes some artistic handiwork for the enjoyment of others. In order to provide for our growing family and to help to support ourselves, we have brought together our creative talents to launch our vestment business.
Our Master Designer
Sister Gemma Maria, our Master Designer, is a master seamstress and has crafted vestments as well as other fine needlework for over 40 years. She has provided bishops, priests, both diocesan and those who belonging to religious congregations, and permanent deacons with custom-made vestments over these many years. Gifts for a Jubilee, Anniversary or Ordination Sister Gemma Maria remains the Master Designer in this new venture as well as teacher, and quality control expert!
A Beautiful Hand-Crafted Gift
You may select from a number of beautiful styles in all of the liturgical colors. Is your Pastor having a Jubilee or Anniversary of Ordination? Would you like to remember a loved one by donating a vestment in his or her memory? Do you know of a newly-ordained priest who would appreciate a beautiful, hand-crafted gift? The beauty and elegance of a well-made vestment enhances the solemnity and sacredness of the Liturgy. We are privileged to share our artistry and our labor for the Lord with you!
