Meet the Author


Susie Johns is an experienced crafter, specialising in papercrafts and embroidery. She contributes regularly to a number of craft magazines and is the author of a range of books on practical subjects, such as collage, painting, drawing, papier-mâché, crochet and embroidery. She also teaches craft workshops.

Jan Ollis comes from a family of crafters and cannot remember a time when she was not creating something. Great Aunt Mabel taught her to crochet more years ago than she cares to remember, making ‘granny square’ blankets for a local hospital. After completing a degree in Fashion and Textile Design and working in a range of textile and non-textile related jobs, Jan started Chi-Chi Moi - a small business making accessories in hand knitting and crochet. One successful early product was a flower corsage, which was so popular Jan made and sold 800 (with help from her family and friends). Jan lives in Somerset, UK with her partner Ben and has two grown-up children, Dominic and Milly.
