Meghan McAleavy uses a standard sewing machine to embroider and apply appliqué to materials. After seeing some of the banners she created for tattoo artists to display at conventions, I immediately ordered one myself. Her work makes great use of bold colors, textures, patterns and materials. The handmade craftsmanship and hours of labor come through so clearly. I’ll never look at banners the same way again.
