Our original design heralds YOU as a Maker: an important part of an important movement. There was a time when it was NECESSARY to know how to create things for yourself: to cook from scratch, repair rather than buy new, grow your own food, and – yes – to sew! These are what we call: Real Life Survival Skills. Now is the time to remember, to re-learn, to reach out and teach others. Shout it from the rooftops, “I SEW. I’M READY.”
The patch measures approximately 3½”, excluding the unique pop-out thimble in the upper left. The high quality embroidery in teal, black, white, and silver is stitched onto a durable woven material. These rich colors and the interesting textures are immediately eye-catching and the lettering is sharp and distinct enough to read from a distance – important when you wear your skill on your sleeve!
Very stable yet still flexible, you can apply to a variety of surfaces and projects. Add one to a jacket, backpack, tote, sewing machine cover, caddy organizer, anywhere you want to show your sewing pride!
A Sewing Survival patch would be a great gift for yourself and all your sewing pals! Quantities are limited in this first run, so strike while the iron is hot… and the pins are sharp :-)!
