    I used a practice triangle from my avatar quilt and used puff paint to write my first name on it. We get a ticket at each Quilt Guild meeting if we wear our nametags. Then we have a drawing at the end of the night and win a small quilt related item.

    First we embroideried the name then added crazy patchwork with scraps and machine stitches.
    They have a very light batting.
    Machine applied "binding". No hand work!
    Took maybe an hour??? I did mine at a friend's because I don't have a fun machine that does fancy stitching. :cry: (It's on my wish list)

    You can pin them on or use lanyards that have clips.
    We have some ladies that like to do beading so they made some pretty beaded lanyards.

    Good Luck on your's. Anxious to see what others have done.
    the "Alice" name badge is darling!

    My name tag is missing too! Mine has an appliqued sheep in the center, and then a border which I had a lot of quilting pins on, and my name at the bottom.

    Our guild gives a "suggested" fabric to use in the pin...but not required, so each person can do whatever they want, using that fabric or not. We have given a piece of counted cross stitch fabric with floss in case people want to embroider their name, again, not required. We haven't had a contest, but that is a fun idea!

    Our name tags are required if you want to be eligible to win doorprizes...so, I will have to look hard to see if I can find mine, or make another one before our next meeting in a few weeks.

    Here is my name tag I made for quilt guild meetings. We had a drawing for all members that wore their tag to a meeting on a certain date. I made mine from sewn together scraps cut off to even up a quilt. I added embrodiery with floss, silk ribbon and beads. It only took an hour to make. I have cardboard inside mine.

    Our guild made new name tags this year, we use our state flag and then the guild pin and our name written, embroidered, stitched on.

    I was in a cafe connected to a quilt shop and ended up sharing a table with some ladies wearing a beautiful flower. I asked about them. The ladies were on an annual bus trip to the shop and all had a flower, some had their names in the centre. They were very eye catching.
    Finished is better than a UFO
