Christine Winney

Christine Winney is a tie-loving textile artist and the owner of Ogsplosh Accessories.  Originally from the UK, Christine moved to Milwaukee in 1997 and brought her love of sewing with her.  A lover of neckties, Christine found herself one evening in 2008 simply fiddling with one of her husband's ties.  Determined to find a new and feminine way to wear these accessories she so loved - the colors, the patterns, the silk features - Christine created a pleated necktie scarf that would become her signature piece.  Her husband, unfortunately, never did get his tie back.  Now she has three designs for her necktie scarves and chokers, and is delighted to have found a new use for such a classic piece.  Christine currently resides in Whitefish Bay with her tie-less husband and their two beautiful daughters.
