CT Women UCC –
CTWUCC has served the historic CT Conference for 91 years.  We have worked continuously to empower women to raise their voice and take on leadership roles in the local churches and beyond.

Candle Croft
(860) 345-8712    Contact:  Jane
Candle Croft began as a candle shop in 1973 when Jane
and David Stickney enjoyed making candles as they served small country churches. 
Jane learned textile arts from her mother: sewing, embroidery, knitting and finger weaving.  Jane has been weaving and designing stoles and other liturgical textiles for more than twenty years. 
Hand woven stoles add richness and warmth to the worship setting.  Their color, texture and simplicity of design communicate the significance of the season without distracting from the central focus on Word and Sacrament.
Hand woven stoles are made to measure or ready to ship.
