Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. Thomas Merton

Hi there, I'm Tash aka Chilligirl, welcome to my shop..

I work out of home, mostly in the lounge, (much to my husbands dismay) and in our bedroom where I have my sewing machine squished next to the bed!
I dream of a studio one day but in all likelihood, I would still probably end up hand sewing in the lounge watching movies...
I have a Diploma in Visual Arts majoring in Textiles Mixed Media from NMIT in Nelson, NZ, and I have two small children who don't stop talking!
We live in a pretty isolated spot here, but it's beautiful even when it's raining

I try to use pre-loved and second hand fabrics and materials where possible,
