You must use your real name to register for the site, but you can choose any DISPLAY NAME you’d like. This will be the name that shows next to your product thumbnails and under your image.

When you’re choosing your DISPLAY NAME, please remember that the Patchwork Marketplace is an excellent opportunity to develop your personal and professional brand, so you may want to use a variation of your real name or a name that is already associated with you in some way.

The DISPLAY NAME is different from your USER NAME and STORE NAME. The USER NAME is what you’ll use to log-in. The STORE NAME will only show on your store page.

Please Note: The only way to change your DISPLAY NAME once you’ve registered is to contact support at In your email tell us what you would like to change it to.
