crafting made easy

Hi! My name is Carolina Ossa, shop owner to HelloChiqui [he-loh chee-kee]

HelloChiqui was created in a time where I was in search of a new creative outlet. Unfortunately, when it came to finding materials and easy to follow how to’s, the options were always few and far between.

I found when it came to sourcing materials, the existing craft kits were always relatively affordable, however, made of cheap flimsy materials which made the process of learning even more frustrating and difficult. Rarely would I find an easy to follow instruction guide or videos on how to create the wonderful pieces I could only dream of creating! And after speaking to other craft maker friends, I realized this was an issue we’ve all dealt with.

I essentially wanted to find a one-stop shop where I could not only learn the craft, but buy high quality materials needed to produce beautiful work. So as of August 2014, I decided to take a stab at it myself, and provide solutions for beginner to intermediate crafters.

I originally launched the shop with 1 kit, the ChiquiLoom, which was created in hopes of providing a high quality weaving kit that was easy to use and sold at an affordable price. The frame loom in this set is made of responsibly sourced pine, and assembled in Australia! With this kit, my customers were instantly given the option of choosing between just starting off with the bare basics or really diving in and getting all the tools of the trade with my Ultimate Edition.

Included in each of my kits are easy to follow and beautifully illustrated instruction guides, and with the help of my loving boyfriend, I was able to produce short and simple "HOW TO” videos which were posted on YouTube/Instagram at no extra charge. I really wanted to make each customer feel like they could jump into a craft at any time and feel like a natural.

As of now, I have expanded my shop to carry new kits for Macrame knotting, as well as pre-made solutions for the not-so-crafty individuals :) I have plans to expand into terrariums, knitting, and more... so let's get started, and HAPPY CRAFTING!
