About Us

Patience and Love is unique shop providing a hand-crafted collection of vest and leash accessories for the avid pet lover. My creations started early 2012 where I created my own bandana pattern and has quickly grown to be a treasured collection of handmade accessories.

Meet Samantha, Creator of all the Things

Who am I? I am that kid that used to spend hours coloring and drawing pictures of things I could invent for my family members. I enjoyed sitting with my grandmas learning how to finger knit, crochet, sew, and knit at a very young age. Summers spent visiting in Alabama with my great grandparents allowed me the opportunity to watch my great grandfather creating wooden games, dolls, and canes. He taught me how to make the cutest crocheted slippers and we would make hand towels with crochet tops to sell for charity donations. I've always loved the creative process and it was a natural step for me to eventually have my own shop of handmade items that I love to create. 

In addition to my crafty endeavors, I have a master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Florida. I worked in the field from graduation until my kids were young when I left the corporate world so I could stay home with the kids and sew for you all.  While in the corporate world, I designed and worked on space communication satellites, components in our military aviation fleet, and on ground-based systems as well.  I love designing and making things and that has continued on to this shop.

My values as a business owner

I believe in excellence, honesty and integrity. It is very important to me to be kind to all, to feel proud of what I do and to maintain high ethical standards. I stand behind my work as I believe in only making the best quality products.  I want everyone to love their gear, so I always strive to make sure that is the case!

A note to you,

Thank you, my amazing customers, I have developed a busy little shop where I have been able to expand from my 1 single-needle embroidery machines to 15 large 16-needle embroidery heads. I am so grateful to all of you for your overwhelming support. Thank you, thank you so so much. Thank you for letting me do what I love. What makes me happy...and hopefully helps many fur babies find forever homes.
