Member Badges

A few members have mentioned that it is hard to spot other members of the group when they arrive early for meetings, so I had the idea that we could each make ourself a small badge or brooch:


  • designed around the theme of scissors
  • using the red, black and white meetup colours
  • in any craft technique we like

to wear when we attend meetings so it's easy to spot one another. I think scissors are a nice theme for the badges as they are essential items for almost any craft you do. If you'd like to make a scissor badge (or badges!) to wear to meetings, it could be an ideal small project to complete during your next craft and chat meetup.

Here are some charted patterns for scissor designs that could be used for counted cross stitch, intarsia knitting, Swiss darning (duplicate stitch) or beading.

Stork scissors 1
Fancy scissors
Stork scissors 2
Stork scissors 3
Stork scissors, plain scissors and back stitch open & closed scissors

Add your ideas here to discuss with other members and it would also be great to see any pictures you have of your finished badges and hear about how you made them and why you chose that craft technique or design.
