We are excited to introduce you to our lead designer, Madhu Rastogi. Meet the woman behind many of the quilt and bear deigns you love!
What did you do before joining The Patchwork Bear?
I love creating designer items, particularly the ones which demand perfection. Being a creative person, fashion designing appealed me immensely. I started a boutique back in India which I managed successfully for many years. My family moved to USA about 15 years back forcing me to close my fashion designing business. Being a Mom of growing daughters, I decided to stay home for few years. When I decided to work again, I discovered Patchwork Bear. I immediately decided to work with them because it is that kind of creative work, I love doing.
What is your favorite part about working for The Patchwork Bear?
Each and every piece is beautiful and gives opportunity to design something new. I love the creative part when I look at the rugs and try to imagine a beautiful pattern emerging out of them. Converting that beautiful design into a perfect flawless piece gives me immense pleasure.
What do you like to do in your free time?
Some of my favorite free time activities involve exploring designing software, internet surfing, shopping, interior decoration, learning new skills on YouTube and other internet sites. I also love seeing new places and I am always ready to travel!
Do you have a favorite quote?
“Live Life Beautifully”
Did you ever work on a bear/project that really stuck with you?
Each and every project is so special; I love all the memory bears, memory quilts & wedding quilts. I absolutely love designing these bears and quilts I had made because they each hold so many memories of their loved ones.
