Quilting is Both an Old American Tradition and a Modern American Activity!

October 16, 2023

“Our museum is staging an exhibit of traditional and modern American quilts and I want to order quilt pins to hand out to visitors. Is there such a thing?”The answer was, “Yes, of course.  We can make a custom quilting pin for you!”The first time I heard that a potential customer wanted to order lapel quilting pins I was amazed. Of course, I learned in grade school that women in frontier towns would get together for a “quitting bee” to make attractive home furnishings that kept their families warm during winter months. The bee also was a social get-together long before there were movie houses, radio or TV. But I thought quilting had disappeared about the time when central heating became common in houses and apartments.How wrong I was! Quilting remains a major hobby for nearly 12-million Americans. There are museum exhibits of traditional and modern quilts that show how quilts have evolved over the years. Local, national and international organizations promote quilting and even hold annual contents. There are companies that mass-produce quilts for the retail market and other companies' design patterns for quilters. Publishers put out books on quilting.My wife was just as surprised as I was when I told her about the customer. Yet she was so intrigued by the idea of a quilt that she bought one for our bed! Not only is it warm on cold Utah winter nights but is a beautiful addition to the room.Just as quilting remains firmly embedded in American folklore, helping design and make custom quilt lapel pins is part of the folklore tradition here at PinProsPlus!

Many Uses for a Custom Quilting Pin!

Ever since that first call many years ago from a customer asking about a quilting pin, we’ve helped a wide range of businesses, as well as civic and cultural organizations, use a custom lapel pin to promote quilting in America.

  • Associations use a lapel pin so members can display pride both in their hobby
  • Pattern makers use custom quilting pins to promote their products
  • Local quilting clubs find that a quilting pin has members showing off pride in the group and their hobby
  • Art fairs and museums use quilting pins to promote an exhibit or festival

We’ve made quilting pins that look like a quilt, a quilting circle, the logo of an organization or association of quilters, the cover of a book about quilting, and even a group of quilters working on a new quilt.If you can dream it, we can make it! By the way, you don’t even have to dream it in detail. Often, a customer will give our talented designers merely a rough idea of what they want and then create concepts for the buyer to approve. Just give us a rough idea of what’s in your mind and we’ll take it from there!
