Lori St. Martin has been an Alberta Girl Guide Leader and member for 25 fun filled years, but every time she visited the Guide Store, she found that there were rarely any new crests. That's when she decided to combine her graphic/web design career with her passion for Guiding. The two naturally merged into creating fun activity embroidered patches and this web site, E-Patches & Crests.
