Boy Scouts 100th Anniversary Jamboree

The Tarheel Patrol

The Bison Patrol

The Road Kill Patrol

The Scorpion Patrol


This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America. Troops who attend the annual Jamboree take flags to fly at their campsite during the event. I have a friend who doesn't sew, so guess who got "volunteered" to make the flags for her Eagle Scout's troop? (That would be ME!) My friend and I have been talking about these flags for months now. In the last two weeks, they have been transformed from a stack of fabric, stencils and drawings into the flags shown above. The flags were designed by Mebane, NC area Scouts. I enjoyed the collaboration and was happy to help make their vision a reality. The artwork was done by a local artist and I did all of the stitching.
