Hi, I'm Chris - the person behind the brand made by ChrissieD and I'd like to tell you a little bit about myself.
Growing up in the north of England in the 1960s I've always been crafty - learning knitting, crocheting plus sewing from a very young age. I have a foundation degree in Art & Design specialising in ceramics. In England, I had my own interior design business concentrating on children's bedrooms, decorative murals, designing home cinemas and entertainment suites.
Moving to the States in August 2011, I discovered quilting, which led in April 2012 to creating the made by ChrissieD brand. On my blog, I share my work, knowledge, tips and tutes alongside info such as where to shop in NYC, stories about all the wonderful fabric stores I visit and feature people I meet on my worldwide travels!
Over the last five years I've been a Bernina Sales/Quilt Store Assistant in Manhattan, NYC moving on to teach quilting/sewing classes privately as well as in stores around the city. Pattern design/writing for quilting magazines and fabric companies keeps me busy too in addition to being a member of the Modern Quilt Guild, NYC Metro MOD Quilt Guild and also the Quilt Alliance.
I live in Manhattan's backyard on the Hudson Riverfront with my husband, Simon and our two dogs; were happy empty nesters since our children have grown and gone off on their own adventures. In my spare time, I love being Grandma to our Grandson, Oliver and visiting our children in their homes around the world.
