About

Story

My name is Rachel Alveston, aka Rad Patch Co, and I’m a self taught embroidery artist and patch maker, based in the United Kingdom. 

I create one of a kind and wearable works of art in the form of patches; using hand embroidery and sometimes free motion embroidery.

I first turned to embroidery in 2014, after the sudden death of a loved one and after being diagnosed with a myriad of illnesses, including Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Anxiety and Depression. Embroidery art quickly transformed from a therapeutic activity to a full time passion for me, and in 2015, I decided to become self employed, after being forced to leave my employment due to illness.

If you would like to further support Rad Patch Co, you can also pledge $1 a month via Patreon:
Patreon.com/radpatchco and in return, you can claim an unlimited 10% shop discount.
