Spirit Breaking Out at Church

Amazing service this morning at church! Total break out of the Spirit. A beautiful time of healing and ministry. Our pastor (John Kramer) started handing out flags to get everyone engaged and things really started flowing. Beautiful! More Dyed4you silk here than I could begin to cover but to name a few: Created for His Glory large bendie flag, Ascend and Consider It Joy 4yd streamers, Prophetic Flow banner flag, Steady Progress XL long quill, the long green dowel flag is one I made about a decade ago (I can’t remember the name), Righteous Warfare XL bendie flags, Passion Fire and Hearing Heart regular spin wings, Enthroned One spin wing (custom size), and more!

Years later I discovered an interesting connection to the woman who had the original idea, and so I gifted her a large dowel wing in the Mantle of Favor style. She said she was “blessed tremendously by this beautiful silk” 🙂 Continue reading

How-to Make Bendies

This post was originally about all sorts of dowels including our bendies, but we quickly realized no one thought getting flags without a rod in them was as cool or convenient as we did. 🙂

So we started simply including our bendies with all our bendie wings and flags, and using what we call “reinforced” bendies (which are another rod inserted in the hollow center of our bendies to reinforce them). We use the reinforced bendies on our larger heavier weight flags and wings (like our XL flag and large wing). Continue reading
