Ecclesiastical Needlework Committee
The Ecclesiastical Needlework Committee (ENC) is a group of Anglican Church Women who meet weekly to create liturgical textiles for local parishes. In 2013, the ENC celebrated its 100th anniversary.
The ENC meets on Mondays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., September through June, at the Diocesan Centre, 135 Adelaide St. E. (just east of Church Street) in Toronto. If you’d like to make new friends, learn to sew and embroider, and help create beautiful textiles for parishes, you’re invited to join the group.
To learn more about joining or about ordering linens, new vestments or repair work, contact the ENC at 416-363-0018 or email email@example.com.
