Beautiful banners Jan 9, 2007
I was delighted with the ideas in this book. Especially the graphs and instructions for use. We will definitely be using this book in our Parish.
Inspiring! Jul 2, 2003
When I realized my calling was to be a church decorator this was the first book I bought on making banners. I have loved using it. The pictures are very clear and inspirational. I have used ideas for Palm Sunday, Good Friday, Easter, Pentecost, Green Season and baptism. The church has been delighted with the results and very supportive, saying how warm thy have made the church feel. I used only the pictures in the book and not the instructions when I made my banners, so they are not copies. For example, on the Easter banner I did not use all the symbols around the edges, only the three crosses at the bottom. While I did tie/die my fabric for Easter, on the others, as the green time and Palm Sunday, I did not as was suggested, but found fabric I liked. The green time, on page 84, gave the feeling of God's beautiful earth, and I will probably add removable appliques as the season progresses to give changes over the long period of Kingdomtide, as it progresses from summer into fall. I used sequined fabrics and metallics on many of the banners. My designs for Pentecost and baptism were my own, only following the idea the book gave. I also appreciated the written meaning given for each banner, and always write something for the bulletin about the banner I present, including the meaning of the season and the symbolism used in design and color. I like the design to speak on its own, no words. I also do not want it to look like one anyone could purchase from a bookstore. I am always on the lookout for more books like this one, but so far it is the best.
GHASTLY !! Apr 5, 2002
Oh, what a waste of my money! Only a few of the pictures of banners was worth looking at. The rest looked like 1960's tie-dyed, psychedelic, drug-altered drawings. The altar frontal pictured on p. 84 is something that shouldn't even be in a church. Sorry I bought it.
