Stitched Billboard for Shiner


(click image to enlarge)

I did it! I stitched my first billboard! It was REALLY HARD, too. People kept honking at me, the needle was 4 feet long (and of course I dropped it), then it started raining…Okay, not really, but the canvas area for this was 24″ long and much more intense work than I’d imagined. Still, such a thrill to stitch a billboard and especially for a brand I love that’s from Texas. Also, this is Shiner’s first IPA.

There are 11 of these billboards in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and more in Houston, Austin and San Antonio. Send me a photo if you see one! They’ll be going up this week. If you’re in Dallas, the most prominent one is at Central and Knox/Henderson.

Just looking at this makes me wanna take a long nap…but also, yeay!! Here’s a blog post all about what went into this project if you’d like the play-by-play.

Here’s the map of DFW billboard locations:
