About The Event

The Episcopal Church Women of St. Thomas in Greenville are happy to announce that the artwork of devoted parish member, Frances Beeland Frakes, will be available to purchase at convention, March 3-4, 2023. Frances Beeland Frakes is a native of Greenville. In 1972, after spending 24 years as an Air Force Wife, she and her husband returned to Greenville and moved into her grandparents home where she grew up. She still lives there at 97. Frances has a passion for art and helping others. Her talents span multi mediums which include needlepoint design, iconography, calligraphy, collage and painting.  She designed and painted numerous projects over the years that the ECW of St. Thomas helped produce for their annual bazaars.  Items include dollhouses, toy chests, puzzles, angels, Christmas cards, and even hand-painted roof shingles from St. Thomas that blew off during Hurricane Ivan. Many of these items can be found in homes throughout our Diocese.  Other accomplishments include needlepoint kneelers for numerous churches, iconography Stations of the Cross, and bringing iconography classes to the Diocese. Frances is still active at St. Thomas today. This is the first and only time these professional quality prints have been offered for purchase by the St. Thomas ECW. The photographs do not do justice to the beauty of this artwork. Find the St. Thomas booth at convention to see for yourself. Checks or cash please
