Hello, my name is Katie Patchett and I am the maker behind Miss Patch Designs. The name "Patch" has always stuck with me since my teens. The "Miss" was added on when I became a teacher and the kids caught on to my childhood nick name. Yikes!
Ever since I was a child I spent most of my Sunday afternoons making weird and wonderful creations to give to people as presents. My nan has a vast array of crumbling painted plaster models and friendship bracelets that must be at least 20 years old!
My love for making led me to complete an art degree at Leeds College of Art and Design and a Masters in Business Studies.
I then went on to share my passion with secondary children as a qualified full time Art and Technology teacher.
All of my experiences so far have led me to create the products I do. Many of my cushions and frames are printed with scripture and positive, inspirational messages. As a young/new Christian, God has led me to use my creative gifts to spread his word. I trust and pray that God will continue to grow Miss Patch Designs on the foundations of love, hope and faith.
