The second All-Russian exhibition The Orthodox Russia with the blessing of His Holiness the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Alexis II started its work at the Moscow exhibition center Guest yard. It is timed to coincide with the summer anniversary of the first All-Russian exhibition of monastery works and church plate which took place in February-April of 1904 in Saint Petersburg. Some 30 out of more than 40 monasteries are participating in the exhibition, as well as all synodal establishments, temples, educational institutions, art workshops, pilgrim services, orthodox publishing houses more than 200 participants in all.

For us, sisters of the Novo-Tikhvin monastery, participation in the exhibition is particularly symbolic. 100 years back during the first All-Russian exhibition held at the Tavrichesky Palace our cloister got the first award for the embroidered works of sisters.

This year it is 10 years since the date of the cloister revival. Gradually the life of the monastery is getting better, a sewing and an icon-painting workshops have already been recreated. Like 100 years ago our sisters sew canonical dress and religious habit. Theres a special trend as well embroidering icons, Liturgical suits, Holy Shrouds, priestly vestments. Sisters are in all respects loyal to the Orthodox traditions with the only exception now they use up-to-date technologies.
