Patty Young grew up in San Jose, Costa Rica, in an environment where she was encouraged to express her creativity freely. Both of her parents dabbled in the arts so it was only natural that she would inherit their creative genes. They moved to the United States in 1987 and Patty attended The University of Central Florida from '89 to '93 where she received her Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design and Photography.
Patty is currently a licensed textile designer for JoAnn Fabrics and Riley Blake Designs. Her fabric designs are produced on quilting cottons, knits and canvas.
Patty has also written a sewing book about creating children's clothing with knit fabrics called "Sewing Modkid Style", published by Wiley.
Patty along with her husband, Jon, also owns and operates MODKID LLC and serves in the role of Lead Designer. MODKID, LLC specializes in high quality boutique-style sewing patterns which include children's clothes, doll outfits, purses and other assorted accessories and home furnishings.
