Catherine’s Creations has been making badges for over twenty years! It all started when Catherine was accepted as an exchange student to the USA.
Trying to raise some spending money, Catherine started making her creations with Helen (Mum) helping to sell them.
When Catherine headed overseas in 1991 it was up to Helen to keep the business going.

Although the business is now mail order only, for fifteen years Helen ran a stall at the Christchurch Arts Centre Market.
Throughout this time the Catherine’s Creations range included a variety of products such as earrings, brooches and buttons before settling on name badges only.
Catherine’s Creations has become a family business with Helen making badges full time and the family helping out when needed.
Catherine moved to Sydney, Australia in 1999 where she remains today but still makes badges part time.
