Patch Work has been active in the greater Chicago-land area since 2007. Before the formation of the current Chicago team, he was a member of the Greater Chicagoland SuperHero Initiative. After the collapse of that team Patch Work eventually rallied and assembled the existing heroes of the greater Chicago-land area and created P.A.T.C.H on January 22, 2013. 
P.A.T.C.H. was featured on the front page of The Chicago Tribune on January 18, 2014. There is a documentary in production currently that details the team and its members.
On May 14, 2017, Patch Work announced that the new team name was Windy City Watchers, but on June 4 of the same year, he announced that "due to popular vote and public opinion" the name change was reversed.
Patch Work was in attendance at Project HOPE 2017 in San Diego.
