Create Custom Embroidered Patches to Show Support for a Cause

February 6th, 2015

Do you support a cause that deserves recognition?  Do you want an item that you can sell as a fundraiser this year?  If you do, you’ve come to the right place.  Custom embroidered patches are attractive, memorable, and meaningful.  They’re easy to apply, durable, and hard to miss.

We offer two different styles of embroidered patches for you to choose from.  The first is up to 75% embroidered and the second is 76%-100% embroidered.  Keep in mind that the more embroidery thread used, the less likely the colored mesh shows through.  If you want contrast, choose colors that go well together and use less embroidery thread to create the visual.

To determine the size of the patches you need, we provide a handy formula.  It is Height = Width/2.  Simply add together the largest height and largest width of your desired patch, then divide that number by two.  The result is your patch size.

We offer the following free edge options for you to choose from:

  • Merrowed Edge
  • Heat Cut Edge

Include the message and image you want to share with others in the patch design.  Let us know what you hope to accomplish with your order of embroidered patches.  Our design team makes sure that every detail is exactly as you want it to be.  After all, your satisfaction is our number one priority.

Your Belly Dance Troupe and Custom Embroidered or Woven Patches

January 6th, 2015

When you think about belly dancing, what comes to mind?  Have you ever seen a belly dancer in action?  Talk about a thrilling experience!  You’ve seen thousands of years of tradition come together in a dance fit for people of all ages and body types.

Belly dancing is an ancient dance adapted for modern times.  Belly dancing classes allow people to explore the art form without judgment.  Men, women, and children often make up belly dancing troupes that dance in public.  The act of sharing belly dancing with others is fulfilling.

Belly Dancing Background

Belly dancing is among the oldest social dances in North Africa and the Middle East.  It’s enjoyed at family and community events.  Middle Easterners introduced the dance to Americans publicly at the 1893 Chicago World Fair.  An exhibit called “The Streets of Cairo” showed dancers from Syria, Turkey, and Algeria as well as those that made up the Egyptian Theater.  Sol Bloom, the promoter of the fair, coined the term “bellydance” to draw interest in his advertising campaign.

Facts About Belly Dancing

Here are some facts about belly dancing that many people don’t know:

  • Belly dancing was only seen at carnivals and vaudeville shows in the past.  People misunderstood the intention behind the dance.  It is meant to bring people together in celebration.  In the past, Islamic societies segregated men from women.  Men and women belly danced in the company of the same sex, not the opposite sex as some people assume.
  • Belly dancing is an expressive dance with noted health benefits.  A person burns up to 350 calories in a 60 minute belly dancing class.  The heart-pumping cardio workout is good for the heart and helps people manage their weight.  Adding belly dancing to a fitness regimen challenges to body and the mind to try something different.  It also helps reduce the risk of a number of heart-related and obesity-related diseases.
  • Belly dance continues to evolve.  Modern forms of the dance incorporate elements of ballet, modern, jazz, Latin, Flamenco, and Indian dance.  No two belly dancing styles are exactly alike.  That’s what makes belly dance remarkable.  It’s versatile and exciting.
  • There are a number of belly dance styles to choose from.  They include Egyptian, Turkish, Lebanese, Gypsy, and American Tribal.
  • Some famous belly dancers include Badiaa Masabni, Naima Akef, and Shafiqa Al-Qibtiyya.  Every generation produces its own group of talented belly dancers.

Belly dancing troupes of all sizes come to us with requests for custom embroidered and woven patches.  They wear these items on jackets and attach them to bags for others to see.  The act of sharing the patches draws interest in belly dancing and helps book classes.  People interested in trying the expressive dance can find a school or gym that offers instruction in their community.
