My story

Hello and welcome to my online shop.

I am Jessie Chorley a passionate collector, maker, tutor and shop owner...mainly working with found paper,books,fabrics and items of pre-worn clothing.

Therefore I have set up this shop ...So wherever you live in this world you can share a little in the things I make and create...many of these items as you will see are made from or inspired by the things I find or stumble across on my daily travels.

I also stock my three self published books and also my very popular friendship quilt kit. All I am delighted to say are available here to ship worldwide to your personal post codes.

I spend my days here in Hackney East London turning many of my inspiring finds in to usable objects and items that can be placed in ones home, worn,carried about on your daily travels or just simply loved once more..The perfect examples being my altered and re-constructed Journals, my framed art works or my simple DIY embroidery templates and kits..

I have also selected some of my favorite fine sewing needles and DMC embroidery threads to share with you.

I hope you enjoy looking and perhaps treating yourself to a little something this may be a new journal to document your own travels...or a lovely hand tied spool of my favorite embroidery thread, or a friendship quilt kit or simple embroidery template.
