After a few years Cath began her own design business called ‘Art Park’…two children came along and her world evolved around them..six years later she began ‘Prints Charming’ which was a successful design business with a strong ‘hand crafted’ view on fabrics, quilting, screen printing and stitching.Cath Derksema Cath then began a new venture ‘The Happenstore ‘ …. A large space that is retail and workshops and studio…a ‘real’ space for artisans and makers….
