Men Sewing Flags

A little counter-point to the last posting.  Images of men sewing flags can be found, just not as easily.  Here are some.  (Click on the photos below for original context as found on the web.)

“Paul Servos, co-owner of the Flag Shop, practices a technique called applique-sewing, in which an image is sewn onto both sides of a flag to give the impression of a flat image.” From article in the CFB Esquimalt Lookout: Navy News Online, March 25, 2013.
