I am very particular not just the type of flags I use, but also by whom they are made. Obviously I have a love for the silks the Father births through me, but it occurred to me I might share why it matters who makes the flags you use.
When the tabernacle was built the Lord says of the men he selected to lead the design/creation that He had “filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills— to make artistic designs” (Ex 31:3-4).
You see anybody can construct a flag, but not just anyone is ANOINTED to do it. And when we work outside of what we’re called and anointed to do all those works get burned up – they are of the flesh. So I will not use a “flesh created” flag. I only want what is created under the unction of His spirit.
In my post on dyeing, I share that I do not operate in a competition mindset. I only want those who the Father has called to have Dyed4you silks to order from me. Even if I wanted to I could not personally create enough instruments of worship for the body of Christ! So with that said, let me tell you about a couple other ministries who have been anointed to create worship tools.
First and most obviously is Prophetic Worship Banners. As you may know, they have the copyrighted quill design and in fact they construct all the Dyed4you quills. In this video, the first pair you see is called Bride of Heaven and the second pair are the ones Nickol gifted to me at the Father’s leading that He then used to inspire the whole Dyed4you quill line.
Another individual I wanted to tell you about is Andrea York. In this video you’ll see three pairs she made for me – these use wooden dowels. The first pair is a single layer of white organza, second pair is 2 layers of the red organza, and third pair is purple organza and gold lame.
I encourage you to always pray and seek the Father on where you’re to purchase your worship tools. Anointing matters.

Another anointed craftsman is Margie Puckett of Unhindered and Unashamed. She hand paints stunning flags that our friend Nickol from Prophetic Worship Banners quills for her. LOVE seeing this unity and working together in the body 🙂
Below are a stunning pair of L quill flags she made me called Under His Loving Wings.
