Designed by local artist Cecily Anderson, this patch captures the quintessentially Vermont practice of “sugaring” , the art of collecting sap and turning it into the maple syrup the state is famous for. Cecily describes her inspiration for this piece:.

“I love sugaring because it allows me to get outside and connect with the earth again long before the ground is ready for planting. I collect sap alone, just me in the trees. And then boiling is very social — hours of puttering around with your neighbors in a sugar shack drinking sap coffee and gossiping.”

Limited Edition - this patch design will be discontinued after one year.

  • Peel and stick embroidered patch (NO iron or sewing necessary)

  • Machine washable

  • Dimensions: 2” W x 3” H

*A portion of the proceeds are donated to a local nonprofit in Vermont - #givewhereyougo

If applying your patch to a new clothing item be sure to pre-wash the item beforehand (without fabric softener).

Peel off the paper backing behind the patch and lightly apply it onto your preferred item. You can still move the patch around at this point to get the right positioning.

Once the placement is juuuust right apply firm pressure, preferably using a hard object, to all areas of the patch (especially the edges). Pressure is the key factor for a strong bond!

To seal the bond, blow a hair dryer to the backside of the patch through the fabric for 10-15 minutes, or directly onto the patch if on a non-fabric item. For fabric items you can also throw them in the dryer for 15 minutes on low heat to seal the bond.

Wait 72 hours before machine washing and wash separately from other clothing when washing for the first time. Turn patched garment inside out before washing/drying and do not dry on hot setting.

While the adhesive backing on the patch is designed to stick specifically to wearables (including leather) and other fabric materials, you can also place your patches on non-fabric items such as a laptop, phone case, journal, and so on. However, Outpatch only recommends applying patches to those items if you are ok with a permanent application. For these kinds of items remember to apply heat with a hair dryer for at least 10-15 minutes to seal the bond. Of course be sure that the item you're applying the patch to can withstand the heat as well!

Outpatch donates a set portion of each patch sale to a community-based nonprofit supporting the place or cause that patch represents.

When selecting nonprofit partners, their aim is to ensure funds end up with the people best positioned to decide how to positively impact their communities. This means they look for nonprofits that are led by members of the community they serve because surprisingly little is invested in them.
