Legendary people and patron saints
St. Clare is the patron saint of embroiderers. Her feast day is the 11th August. She is often considered as the first Franciscan nun. She was an embroideress and her convent decorated many liturgical vestments for the Franciscans. She is the patron saint of eye disorders, and of television, but that is a different story.
