When you think of embroidery, you probably think of the floral hoop art that hangs on your grandmother’s wall. And when you think of crocheting, you probably think of the sweater your aunt made you. While the origins of embroidery and crocheting go back thousands of years (and yes, they’re usually hobbies among older people), the art forms are now part of the latest clothing trends.
Even though we can create embroidered patches in nearly any size, we’ve noticed over the years that when it comes to stitching, the bigger the better.

Here are just a few examples.
Remember when your grandmother used to sit in her chair and embroider artwork with warm sayings and homey images? When people thought about embroidery, they used to associate it with the generations before them. Today, however, that’s all changing.
Embroidered patches are considered pieces of art and can be used for a wide variety of occasions – they can be used to represent a company or organization, as a commemoration, to display achievements, to identify military personnel, or simply for decorative purposes.
