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 our vestment business. However, we are longer able to continue the business for various reasons. We are now having a closing inventory sale which provides a 20% discount.
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. These vestments make great gifts for ordinations or anniversaries.
A Beautiful Hand-Crafted Gift
You may select from a number of beautiful styles in all of the liturgical colors that are still available. 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! Please take advantage of this opportunity before it passes by.
Update as of September 15, 2017 – Chantal Artisans will no longer be making vestments and is closing. Please be advised that we are not taking any more orders, but will continue to have a sale on the vestments that we still have in-stock. We are so grateful for your past support. The remaining vestments can be viewed at our monastery or inquired about by telephone.
Even though we are discontinuing our vestment work, we do create other religious goods such as rosaries and our nun figurines that express different elements of our monastic life. Please see examples of the “Sisters of the Little Habit” figurines:
If you have any questions or wish to place an order, please call between 9 AM to 5 PM Monday thru Friday at (413) 243-3995 or use our contact form on the Contact page.
