About

This is the blog for Petrina Burkard aka Batsy found at the 17 Avenue Studios and at Batsy Patterns available on etsy.

Find out about upcoming popup shops, open studios, new releases and upcoming patterns, and life in the studio. I will be posting about projects in the works, photo galleries, tips and tricks and tutorials and the odd free pattern. For a visual and typically more up to date log follow me on Instagram.

The designer: Trina
I am women’s wear designer and a mom of two, a little girl and a wee boy. Much of what create is for women but do make children’s clothing and patterns as well as having a love for knitting, crochet and macrame. I am a bit of a geek, especially when it comes to the technical side of sewing, pattern drafting and most fibre arts. I have been sewing and designing for most of my life ending up in a career in graphic design before ending up in fashion. Originally from Kitchener and half living in Toronto Ontario I now find myself splitting my time between two different cities, Scotts Valley and Santa Cruz in California.
