RESOURCES FOR CHILDREN'S CELEBRATION AND IMAGINATIVE PLAY

P3240005edited.jpgGOOD SHEPHERD BANNER

 

This bright, bold image of the Good Shepherd is on a green background, in simple solid colors, with a gold halo and a very touchable fuzzy lamb. Gold fringe trims the bottom of the banner.

The finished banner is 21 by 36” in size and surprisingly lightweight—easily carried in procession by children as young as 4.  It can also be hung from a hook.

An ideal image for hanging near your children’s altar or in a church nursery. The style is simple and classic, equally at home in traditional and contemporary surroundings.

 

This banner is available ready-made or as a kit.

To order, click on the Order Forms tab, or call 203-624-2520.

bannr01: Good Shepherd banner pattern.                           $   25.00
bannr02: Good Shepherd banner, made to order.             $400.00

Please allow several months’ lead time for custom-made banner orders.

 

The kit consists of two sheets of full-sized patterns (one for the background fabric and the other for all the separate pieces) plus detailed, illustrated instructions for cutting, assembly, finishing, and display. Fabric, trim, poles and hardware are not included.  Intermediate sewing skills, and a sewing machine that does zigzag/embroidery stitching, are essential.


Under consideration for future development:  designs and kits for additional banners, including the “other” Good Shepherd—the beardless youth in a tunic with the lamb on his shoulders—and also for clergy stoles, some designed to be decorated by children. 

We also hope to develop a new Jesus doll, to our own design, since our beloved Jesus Doll from the In Stitches ministry is no longer in production.

Your suggestions and requests are welcome!

BOAT AND TABLE                                           plset08                $50.00

So many stories in the Gospels take place in a boat or around a table.  These beautiful glossy wooden models are scaled to correspond with the “Jesus, Disciples and Women” playset.  All the figures fit into the boat and around the table, opening up a wealth of possibilities for children to work and wonder with the Gospel stories.

Note:  the boat model is not intended for water play.
