For those members attending Nydia Temple’s Installation on March 19th may have noticed I was wearing a different robe. Not to take away from the historical purple robe with the very long train nor the beautiful robe designed and worn by Kathy Walliker for Nydia Temple 100th Anniversary, both robes were little, large for someone under five feet tall.
Both Pr. Linda Hatch and PQ Holly Austin felt they too would feel better in a robe with a shorter train. So, the three of us collaborated along with JPQ Nancy’s input designing a queen’s robe scaled for those of us 5’1” and under in height. We found this luscious green velvet. Member, Adell Goggins, embroidered the white roses on the bottom of the train. A few sequins were added for bling. PQ Holly had the hard part, sewing the robe together. It was a little touch and go but the robe was completed prior to the installation. We have shared the cost in making the robe so there is no charge to the Temple.
I was proud to wear the new robe. Thank you everyone for all your compliments made during our installation. For the future Nydia queens, you now have a couple of choices. It will be fun to watch each cycle and see which robe is chosen.
