"GREAT AMERICAN PATCH HUNT"

So with everyone's Celebration memories popping up on social media this week, I was originally just going to make a post and share it myself across multiple pages to celebrate the completion of this little project I've been working on. Then I thought to myself; "Well that's stupid. Why don't you do some typy-type and have Cable do the sharing for you when he plasters his thirty or so some groups with CreatureCantina.com updates on Wednesday."

As with all my stories, a quick backstory.

Two years ago, I achieved the American Dream of homeownership. And while with many that comes the excitement of family and joy and all that happy bullshit; my excitement was I finally get a Chewbacca Room and have more space to display things, as it is of my mindset that a collection is not worth having if you cannot properly display it. So I have worked consistently to that end, to display and showcase more and more of my collection.

Back to Star Wars Celebrations.

One of the many joys of attending Celebration is the patch hunts. Even as swag has begun to jump the shark the last two Celebrations, the large multi-patch sets continue to provide joys of tracking them down and completing them. The Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society has partnered with numerous other collecting clubs over the year to produce some of the finest multi-club patch sets at Celebration. And at more recent Celebrations, individuals in the PSWCS have worked together to produce their own patch sets. And as I am the loyal and dedicated PSWCS Sergeant-at-Arms, I have the luck and the pleasure of getting my hands on all of them.

For the past six months I have worked on getting many of these patch sets framed and hung on my walls. Many I was able to glue onto felt myself using fabric glue, but for some of the larger ones I went to Michael's and had them professional sewn onto matte backings. Finally I am ready to reveal my hard work and bask in the accolades of my accomplishment. For your viewing pleasure, I present to you my patch-o-rama!
