Reviews - What do customers think about Banners for Worship (Concordia Banner Craft)?
Lots of banner designs Oct 25, 2006
I am a beginner banner maker. I put 4 banners in my church for Easter (2004)as well as using #34 as altar parament and the response was great. My challenge then was to keep the banners refreshed and seasonal. For the summer I used the design on front cover, main banner said "Seek and you will find" side panels said, "Heart, Soul, Mind" and "Faith, Mercy, Grace." The Praise God banner, p4 and 1 from from another book by Mrs. Harms (Quick and Easy Banners Designs)finished my summer display. Christmas I used the angel p34 and the angel from her other book, I rendered them in white satin, layered wings and glitter. Spectacular, Awasome designs. I also made several for Kid Kingdom from this book. Can't wait to make some more!
Banners for Worship (Concordia Banner Craft) Aug 14, 2006
Our team found this book very easy to follow in construction and information. We constructed 6 banners in a very short time by using this book and were VERY pleased as to 1-2-3 steps included. We recommend this one for usage of beginning users as well as those who have constructed them for awhile.
Great ideas Aug 12, 2006
Hey! Just xerox the design page of the banner of your choice and get out the colored pencils. Color in the drawing and you have a good jumping off point to take to the fabric store. Pin swatches to the sheet for an easy reference. I have used several of the designs in the sanctuary and have received no complaints. Simple way to get started and has loads of info inside.
I would also recommend How to design and make banners for sacred and secular festivals by Banbury and Dewar (some color pics) AND Fabric applique for worship by Jerdee (NO color pics except cover & includes stoles and chausables). Both of these are for the more advanced, creative designers and seamstresses out there.
Nice but no color Mar 10, 2004
Nice ideas but no color pages. Only the cover of the book has color.
The Best of the Best May 25, 2002
As a beginner in banner making, this book proved to be just what I needed to start what has blossomed into a large banner ministry. There is a wealth of information on the purpose, design, construction, display and storage of worship banners as well as pages of creative designs and suggested color schemes. It remaims my favorite in a growing library of banner books.
