What is a Chibbin?

Hello and welcome to the nest! I’m Denise, the founder and chief maker at Chasing Chibbins.

After almost 20 years in marketing, and with the last eight years spent working in London for a Big 4 accountancy firm, in February 2020 I left my job to spend more time with my son before he started school. But once the first lockdown hit just a month later, I found myself with a lot more time than I expected spent at home! So, in the evenings I dusted off my trusted Singer sewing machine and started making again and Chasing Chibbins was born. The name is inspired by my son, who spent many happy lockdown hours in the park chasing chibbins (what he called pigeons).

Initially a small side hustle to earn some extra pennies for Christmas – my favourite time of year - Chasing Chibbins has become more than that. It’s a way for me to be creative and to sew items that bring people joy, but it’s also a way to put my business and marketing experience to good use.

There’s just something about Christmas that’s so magical…even as an adult. That’s why I strive to create beautiful heirloom Christmas items. Because there really is nothing quite like the joy of watching your child’s face when you unpack your family’s advent calendar. Or when you hang up your stockings on Christmas eve – or when your children come bundling down the stairs on Christmas morning with a look of sheer delight on their faces to see that Santa really has filled their Christmas sacks.

I am passionate about using durable, natural materials to make my items and I try to keep my designs simple, so that they can delight you and your family year after year and become part of your Christmas traditions.

If you have any questions at all I would love to hear from you via chat message, email or carrier Chibbin!

    Originally a marketer for a large professional services company in the big smoke, I quit the rat race during lockdown to do what I love most – sewing, crafting and spending time with my little boy. Thank you for helping me follow my dreams!

  • Mr T

    All round super star when it comes to all things tech and website related and helps out with photography too. Without him I’d still be battling to get all my lovely items online!

  • Chief Chibbin Chaser


    The original Chibbin Chaser, who just loves to run and of course chase pigeons. Totally charming but very distracting when it’s time to get some work done!
