First, where is a good herald when you need him? I want to do a decent version of my coat-of-arms (I will revert to my family’s which is part of the one I was using). Hopefully technology has advanced to the point where the image can also be used for machine embroidering, as on vestments, etc.
Second, are there traditionally-minded priests out there who are interested in forming oratories?
Third, for the umpteenth time, this blog needs serious work.
Some of you have written to suggest whom I should contact or to offer me the services of others.
What I need are contacts from the very people who would do the heraldic work or the server/software work.
That said, I want to give one guy a plug. He reached out to contact me himself! That’s what I am talking about.
Once I get the arms sorted, this fellow could do embroidery. HERE
UPDATE 20 May 2016:
I have some good news on the heraldry front!
First, several people reached out to me both about the art (the coat-of-arms itself) and about the embroidery. Thanks to everyone.
One of you, however, dug right in and got to work. I think he did a great job. I have also already put him in touch with a potential client.
So… here is my stemma, which is my family arms without the extra stuff I had added some time back.
He sent a fairly large version, which I will probably get printed and framed.
The next stage will be to find someone who will do the embroidery!
NB: If you want to contact this herald for some work, drop me a line and I will forward your email to him.
