Message from my Mom:
Patrick was born 3 1/2 months premature. He was a "fighter" and a "lover" from the very beginning. As he grew, so did his list of diagnosis, but we soon learned to look past those and see Patrick for who he is. Patrick has used "switches" to control his environment for a long time. He has one switch that controls his music, another that turns on his fan and another that runs his blender. He also has another switch that is hooked up to a measuring cup on the end of a gooseneck. Patrick has used this device for years to help water the plants, help pour the milk for a milkshake, etc. As an Occupational Therapist, I was constantly thinking "what could Patrick do vocationally, with his switches?" And then it came to me that he could make layered jars of cookies, soups, etc., using his "pouring switch". And thus, Purely Patrick was born. Patrick truly is a cheerful soul, who always has a song in his heart (and is always literally singing!). He is our "ambassador to life" and brings a smile to all who meet him!
Hi! My name is Patrick Lewis.
I love to listen to music, spend time outside, sing, swim, and participate in adaptive skiing. I have even participated in several triathalons with help. I enjoy spending time with my family. I enjoy making these products and I hope you will enjoy them too!
My products are made by the use of assistive technology. I use a pouring device that is activated by a switch that I control. I have the help of my mother and 2 job coaches to ensure the measurements of my products are correct.
I participate in local craft fairs and farmer's markets. My "Made in Vermont" products are done so with care and determination to ensure that they are the absolute best experience for my customers.
