OUR INTERCESSORS 
 These two honorary guild members look over our worktable.  Some mornings we come to the table and things aren't quite the way we left them and we wonder - if possible (and we know it is possible), just possibly we have had some heavenly company rearranging a few beads here and there - ideas come together from these new arrangements - and many are now on the site. So we feel free to say. "Thank you dear Mary and Little Flower, we love what you do for us, we love your rosaries!"

 ROSARY WORKSHOP GUILD
We are a guild of crafts women who live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the diocese of Marquette. We  are active members of the Church of the Precious Blood and are all moms and (19 children).  Most of us are grandmoms -  over 36 grandchildren and 3 great grand child!



 MEET THE GUILD
When you buy one of Guild’s Rosaries you will know who made it as there will be a signature on either a tag or on your invoice sheet. Your name will go into our prayer box and you will be with us in name, spirit and prayer. We would love to be remembered in yours, too. (PS) coundent get a picutre of Carol L without her hands in constant motion - fast?  Yes, but must be the French blood in her veins?
+

LEFT : CAROL M: VP of beads - she keeps the group from  getting too serious - when she laughs beads fly all over the place. Carol has chaired the Life in the Spirit Seminars, annual Church Bazaar, and she and her husband have spent years as EMs.  Pretty busy these days being a gramma and great gramma - a great cook!  Carol makes rosaries, keeps the inventory books up to date. And we share grandkids!
+
RIGHT:  CAROL L:  VP Music - Carol is choir director (Sat evening Mass) and keeps us in tune at the work table. Since her husbands death, she sings with the Sweet Adelines Internatonal  and loves to sew for her 7 grandkids! She takes care of sale rosaries and designs special order rosaries.  Orders parts and beads as needed.  She also does charges and payroll.



OH, THERE IS MORE!
SUE is the one who usually anwsers the phone during working hours and  fills your parts orders and reorders parts from our 3 casters. She goes out of her way to help you receive parts that go together.  JEANNIE: and her husband Tom (below) keep us together and on track at the annual bead shows in Tucson and Milwaukee. 
+
LEFT:  SUE L. VP of spreadsheets - and stuff like that. Sue and her husband are very active at our church.  He is one of our ushers at Mass,  and she has the EM ministry. She teaches HSCCD and oversees the bible study program at church and  for us along with your parts orders.  3 grandchildren, includes twins! Sue is who you talk to when ordering parts and bible study DVDs.

RIGHT:  JEANNIE T:  We depend on Jeannie and her husband Tom (below) when we travel to shows in Tucson and Milwaukee.  At the shows, Jeannie is a 'bead spotter' leading us to beads we cannot miss! Jeannie also fills orders and makes rosaries. She makes knotted rosaries for our troops. 



AH!! BUT NOT LEAST, THE MEN 
+
+
LEFT:  JOHN B:  The Guild totally depends on John to take care of the secured ordering cart by responding to yu the customer. He confirms the orders as they come in during our time away at the shows.  He does the charges so there are no delays. John's real job is building ships for the US Navy under strong security codes.  John is a deacon at their AG church. His wife Sandie does a lot of our imaging, Sandie is Carol M's daughter and their two children are alos my grandchildren. 
+
RIGHT:  TOM T: Tom has multiple joobs on wheels!  (Some 4 wheels and some 2 wheels) He keeps us humored with great stories that Jeannie has heard over and over again! And makes us sure we eat 3 healthy meals a day! Tom drives us down to the Milwaujkee show and to the Tucson show and lets off right at the door!  He even scouts beads at the shows and carts all our purchases!

And then there is Al who goes incognito, tolerates the rest of us while moving cars and cutting acres of lawn!  (Thanks Al!)

 WE GIVE THANKS!
Our gifts are spread out beyond this ministry - in music (choir director), eucharistic ministery, teaching at the Prayer Group or  CCD, working with Pre Marriage and preparing our youth for Confirmation. And we just seem to hang out together.  Most of us have been to Franciscan University at Steubenville - either through chaperoning our youth to the Conferences or simply - taking credited courses - and all of us belong to the Fruit of the Spirit Prayer Group. And yes, the husbands are all friends and pray together in the mens group!  God is Good!
+
In  2000, the year of God's favor,  the guild did a pilgrimage to the cathedral of our Diocese in Marquette MI, where we spent the day with many other pilgrims from the UP of Michigan.  First, we met with the Bishop, then with a dear friend and fellow Michigan resident, 'Butch' Jim Murphy.  Jim led us in a mini retreat, sharing with us how the Lord worked through his people on his pilgrimage walk across the UP 10 years ago. (This would be a simple trek compared to his next walk requested by several of our US Bishops.  The pilgrimage walk from Florida to California (93-94) was one of forgiveness and unity.)  We shared Eucharist, then sat down to wonderful dinner before returning home on our pilgrim bus. And our hearts GIVE THANKS as the sign behind us shares, to you for your encouragement and support over the last 5 years.

~ MISSION STATEMENT ~
 OUR VISION IS TO ...
... provide the finest handmade rosaries, chaplets and other fine religious art forms for personal worship we can make for the glory of our Lord. There are millions of plastic Rosaries out there and beautiful prayers are said on them with just as much heart, but our vision is to design and craft the finest work we can for you with the materials at hand. The Guild believes fine art and craft gives visual Glory to God, therefore for us, the best for you is very, very important as He deserves our best.

  NOW WE SEE HIM  -  NOW WE DON'T!
Well, who is he?  We are not really sure.  He followed us home from Germany so we put him on top of the computer where he sits.  Problem is, he keeps jumping in front of the keyboard then off to the beads.
+
+
Our biggest problem is that he loves beads.  Loves beads!  Loves to string beads but as you can see, his beard keeps getting in the way and the beads fall off the strings into his beard.  (still some hidden in there) What should we do?  Hi is kinda cute ... guess we will call him, 'HOBBLET!
