DIYers can track their progress and show off their expertise by earning DIY's skill patches. Each skill has 10–20 "challenges" (aka project prompts) that introduce and explore the skill topic.
To earn a skill, a DIYer must successfully complete 3 challenges for that skill. (How do I submit a project for a challenge completion?) Once 3 projects have been submitted and approved, the skill patch will appear at the top of their DIY portfolio.
Embroidered DIY skill patches can be purchased online in the DIY Market.
