Handmade Religious Church & School Banners

Banners are all unique, and specially designed for each client.  There are no standard sizes or procedures for creating a banner.  The banners may be machine or hand embroidered, or appliqued. All are lined and lightly padded with various styles of support for the rod or pole.


St Michael and All Angels Banners

This banner was to replace the 50 year old banner hanging in the chapel.

The blue background fabric was an imported silk and cotton damask.  The figures were created from satin and appliqued to the blue fabric. To create the outlines gold or silver thread was couched onto the satin. St Michael's face was designed and machine embroidered.  The incense burner was hand embroidered as were the smoke curls rising from it.

The gold lettering was machine embroidered onto separate material then appliqued onto the background.

The border was embellished with gold braid and edged in flanged cord piping.  The lugs for the rod were individually attached by hand to the banner.  The bottom edge was finished with gold silk fringe.  A plain backing was lightly padded.

School Banners

Embroidered design of school crest for John Septimus Roe Anglican Community School.  Banner was lined, and had a rod pocket at top split at the back to hold a vertical post.






















                                                                         School's House Banners - designs were also embroidered.


Saint Lawrence Banners


Embroidery created from the statue that I photographed in the church.  The embroidery is very life like, even replicating the folds in his tunic.  I've been told that St Lawrence's eyes "seem to follow you"!

The lettering was also machine embroidered and appliqued onto the background.  Braid embellished the banner, and flanged piping was along the outer edges.  It was lined, and lightly padded, with gold fringing on the end and ties at the back to secure more firmly to the carrying pole.
