Photo gallery Special - the Christmas Story

    The photo gallery contains a photo of the Christmas story characters. Here's some close-ups of the various "players" and some background. Click any photo to enlarge.

    The main characters were knitted a number of years ago by a group of Parkwood folk affectionately known as the "sheep ladies" based on patterns created by Dianne Mindel. The background was created at the same time by Dianne's husband Gerry. Each year as the story is told during the Advent season, children who are hearing the story for the first time are given a gift of a sheep to take home with them as a reminder of the miracle of Christ's coming.
