Even if you haven’t come before, everyone is invited to come to the Guild Room on Sunday, August 5th, after Fellowship Time when we will continue to make Chrismons for the Advent Season at Northminster. There are different techniques for a variety of skill levels. There’s something for everyone, and even several kid-friendly patterns are available to color.
We have plenty of supplies and we have new needles — ones that are easier to work with and plentiful in supply. So come and help. Bring the whole family, all ages are welcome! This will be our last “official” Chrismons-making meeting but we can continue this activity at home. Email Pastor Michael to see about future plans.
Chrismons are white and/or gold ornaments made with Christian symbols (the name is a contraction for ‘Christ monograms’), They were first developed by Frances Spencer and the women of the Ascension Lutheran Church in Danville, VA. Many churches now display a Chrismon tree during the Advent and Christmas season decorated with handmade ornaments.
