Chrissie Jeffery (Creative Director) 

After growing up in Bellingen in country New South Wales, Chrissie studied at East Sydney Technical College (now the National Art School), completing a rigorous three year `hands-on’ course.
 After a couple of years with Pamela Taylor, Chrissie began her own soft furnishing business, Stitches, working with a range of interior designers.

Her reputation for reliability and beautiful workmanship spread but she felt frustrated that she could not get the fabrics she wanted. After a trip in the late ‘80s to look at London textile businesses, Chrissie opened her first shop, No Chintz in Sydney. `It was a tiny little shop but there was a demand for a wider choice of retail fabric and we filled the niche.’

Today, there are three shops, Woollahra , Willoughby and Balmain all of which have a dedicated following from customers who want a special product but she is equally committed to her staff in the workroom. `It’s vitally important to keep these skills alive, to hold onto the knowledge.’

Lisa Llavero (The Crafter) 

Textiles, craft and a love of all things handmade is certainly in Lisa Llavero’s blood. From an early age Lisa would spend afternoons after school in her mother’s Sydney store, “Calico & Lace” – where she would watch the sewing and embroidery classes with enthusiasm. Her passion for the world of fabrics and hand crafted objects led her to start making toys which her mother would sell on her behalf.

Lisa studied textiles and design, completing an Advanced Diploma in Interior Design at SIT Design Centre – before joining the team at No Chintz nearly ten years ago. Lisa has used her skills and knowledge in design and textiles to grow from design assistant to store manager.

Since the birth of her daughter, Lisa has continued at No Chintz in the roles of visual merchandiser for the retail stores & as the coordinator and one of the craft professionals at the ‘Sewing Room’ workshops.
