Seattle Seahawks Dancers Photos from Preseason Week 4

Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders Photos from Preseason Week 3

The Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders are a squad that we would like to feature more here, but unfortunately, they don’t publish a lot of photos as compared to some other NFL squads.  Any chance we get to see the Eagles Cheerleaders, we should savor the moment.  So let’s check out the 2019 squad.  Click here to view the Eagles game day gallery.

2019 P-R-O Convention Memories – Charlotte Honey Bee Amber and Washington Redskins Cheerleader Jaclyn

The P-R-O Convention is a place where you can meet new friends or renew old acquaintances.  It is an event that bonds young women from all over the country into this sorority of professional dancers and cheerleaders.  And I stumbled upon one of these friendships or wass it an acquaintance. Either way it was a spontaneous moment.

As I was finishing up my session with Honey Bee Amber, whom you will see soon, she met up with Washington Redskin Cheerleader Jaclyn, my next model in line, and they posed together for some Instagram memories.  It was a great moment and I decided to take a few snaps for UltimateCheerleaders.com and this is my favorite.

P-R-O Convention sisters and All Stars!


We continue our parade of All Stars tomorrow with another honoree.  Whom will it be? I think you can guess.

Satin Stitches at the NFL Cheerleader Directors Conference

Editor’s note: Satin Stitches, a long time sponsor of UltimateCheerleaders.com, recently attended the NFL Cheerleader Directors Conference in Minneapolis and they shared with us their recent experience at the event.

Satin Stitches Ltd has been attending the prestigious ‘NFL Cheer Directors Conference’ every year since 2009 (hosted by New Orleans). Vendors who work with NFL cheerleading teams present their products during a trade show, complete with a fashion show, for those of us who create the costumes, uniforms, workout and fan apparel for the teams.


 Satin Stiches Styles-C3014+K7000-1

For months prior to the ‘big day’, all of our designers start brainstorming, sketching, planning, and finally creating CAD patterns for brand-new styles to feature during the annual event, which is hosted by a different NFL cheer team, every year. Styles are then cut, sewn and critiqued, and finally embellished, if they make the grade. We put together a ‘Look Book’ that is available online, in our Web Store.

This year’s event took place at our brand new Minnesota Vikings’ training facility. Because we were ‘local’, three Satin Stitches’ design team members attended the trade show and fashion presentation. Tami Hedrick, MVC Cheerleading Director and her assistants put together a very well-run event, making sure that each vendor received ‘face time’ with all the NFL teams (nearly all were in attendance. The event was sandwiched in between our February snow storms, so everyone attending enjoyed our snow (with no travel problems)!

We were thrilled that the Minnesota Vikings lent an official photographer for the event. We took our own video.

Attached are photos of our booth and of our featured styles in our section of the fashion show. The REAL Minnesota Vikings Cheerleaders did a fabulous job of modeling.

We hope you enjoy our new styles and order your audition outfit or new team uniforms!
