The mother of one of my co-workers (she’s also the wife of our CFO) makes banners. I didn’t know this until Erin (the daughter) showed me a few she had brought in. Her mom does amazing work. She makes all the banners for the annual Urbanna (Virginia) Oyster Festival in November.
She makes them with the reverse applique method. If you are interested in seeing more of her product, let me know and I’ll get Erin to bring them in so that I can take pictures and send to you. Trust me, these are quality, handmade pieces.
