merit badge sash q2 in Uniforms Posted September 10, 2019 2 hours ago, Double Eagle said: From the sounds of this thread (pun intended), we need a 139th merit badge of "Sewing", and make it a required one It would be politically inexpedient to introduce one within the next few years. People would complain that the girls are changing the program. Of course, to be able to sew on a button, restitich a seam that has come loose, and hem a pair of pants is really really useful for almost anyone. To take a tuck in a waistband, to replace an elastic or zipper, or to make a costume for a special event -- also handy. I was disappointed that GSUSA doesn't include sewing in its badges the way it used it.
