Ditto. I sew them all on, even if it's an iron-on. I don't want to risk having gunk on my bag if I ever decide to take it off.

I have always sewn them on, hate that gunk. However with all these fancy waterproof/breathable backpacks now I hate to ruin my latest expensive purchase by making needle holes in it. I have taken to sewing my patches onto my car rug.

I always sew rather than stick. The backpack I currently use is quite thick material and would be almost impossible to sew. So I have sewn my badges to a widestrip of what I believe is called petersham ribbon (the stuff nurses belts used to made of) and attached this to the flap of my pack with elesticated loops. In theory if I change my pack I can just move the badges.

I have a shirt. AP Schmidt (Janine Devine) taught me this trick when we were both at GS camp in the 80s.

Pick a light-weight (wish I'd remembered this part) long, long _sleeved_ shirt of a color you can stand to wear year round. Hers was striped, mine is forest green. It'll make a great cover-up for hiking in the summer and a much-needed jacket for the Fall.

Obviously you need to sew the badges on, gunk won't do.

Good idea but what would put me off is that some badges/patches seem to be allergic to washing :-) Some fade or disintegrate after a couple washes. But as all LBing badges are top quality that won't be problem, will it?.

Blue Diamond Worthy Patches

Well, if you can't beat 'em..join 'em....right? lol

I am happy to debut a new patch..the Blue Diamond Worthy Letterboxer" patch. There is no criteria or hoops to jump through to get this patch. Even if you HAVE a BD, there is no guarantee you will have it tomorrow, and so I made this patch to say LetterboxER...instead of Letterbox. You may not have a BD at this time, but if you are a BD in your heart and manner...by treating others with kindness and respect and doing your best to be a positive contributor to the Letterboxing hobby..you qualify in my book. I hope the patch will inspire you to explore those cool places, write those awesome clues, and carve beautiful stamps!

Patches are $3 a piece and can be paid with Check, Money Order, Cash or Paypal. Please enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope (1 stamp for every two patches). The gray areas in the scan are actually done in silver metallic thread...so cool! A couple of folks around the country got a sneak peek at these..and I also debuted them at the Mills at Salmon Falls event in NH. I really appreciated all the nice compliments. Ryan and Amanda...yours are in the mail as we speak!

Write to me here or at Lockwench@yahoo.com and I will send you my address. Tshirts may be in the works if I get enough interest.

I've tried so hard not to be vain about the fact that I've finally got a Blue Diamond box, and now you're offering these pretty patches! Do I give in and order one for my backpack? Or do I resist pretend that "it really doesn't matter what others think"?

This website offers more temptations!

I know what you mean. I want soooo many patches. But I've vowed to only buy patches after I have boxed in that area. Hence, no PNW patch for me.....YET! :)

Well, what about patch collectors? I collect patches; from parks, from events, from letterboxing, from places...
I would like to order one of your patches, but I don't know where to send the money and I almost feel guilty about. I really would like to have one just cause it's a letterboxer patch. Actually I wouldn't mind ordering one for my brother as well. How do I go about it? It is a really cool patch. I like the shape.

LockWench,

If you think they can get here by March 30th, I'll put in an order for a mess of patches for the April 1st Gathering.

I despise PayPal, but for this I will endure the suffering!!

Watch for an order to come through soon.

Yes, one stamp is plenty for every 2 patches you order. So 1 stamp for 1-2 patches, 2 stamps for 3-4 patches, etc.

I would love one of these patches and will be contacting LW soon.

But as for everyone being blue diamond worthy...I disagree. I have been to several boxes where it is obvious that the person put little effort into the logbook or the carving of the stamp. They simply wanted a plant.

Not to mention the "letterbox" that Becky and I found that was simply full of religious pamphlets and a store bought stamp from Wal-mart (I know because I've seen it there).

I still believe everyone has the potential to be "worthy" of planting great boxes in great places. Whether or not they will be inspired to do so is a different thing. At least my patch will last longer than an actual BD.....before I opted out, those came and went and came and went and came and went...well....you get the picture. :)

so that box isn't for you.
im not a religious kinda guy either and probably would also be turned of by it, but if someone who did follow the words from above, then that box would be just fine for that someone. i have found boxes that i really didn't care for and i feel now, that i am not to complain about it. i have store bought stamps and foam stamps out there, so i am every bit as untalented as some others i met. but, just because i have those still out there, doesn't mean anything. not to brag, but i have come a long way. my first stamp is carved from a pink eraser, my last stamp was the talk of the town at the last event attended.

did you not enjoy the hike? was it a drive-by? i find myself carrying a camera more now, so i don't get all caught up the prize at the end of the trail. i have a blog that i post on all the time and so, the better the story, the better the interest. i think that letterboxing is more than just about the prize. it is about the wrapping around the prize. look at the beautiful wrapping sometime when your out. then you will see who is a blue diamond worthy letterboxer. even if it is in the LORD's company.

now it sounds like i sit in church!
