Product Description

This practical handbook for homes and church communities helps to enrich the Christian celebration of Advent through the creation and use of an Advent calendar. Non-sewers can make a calendar using magazines and junk-mail, or one of felt, while more advanced stitchers can make a permanent calendar out of fabric. Barbara Dee Baumgarten also gives a brief history of the development of Advent in the Christian calendar, as well as detailed explanations of the various Christian (Old and New Testament) symbols that can be used during the season, the Sundays of Advent, and the Great 'O' Antiphons from December 17-23. This 8 1/2" x 11" softcover book also features black and white, hand-drawn illustrations. 150 pages.
