Horror Favorites With Chelsey The Stitchkeeper

It would be impossible not to notice the care and detail Chelsey, a.k.a. The Stitchkeeper puts into her handmade collectible likeness of horror's most known and obscure figures. Her grandmother taught her how to master the craft and since, the Edmonton and Spruce Grove, Alberta, Canada native spends much of her time recreating our nightmares into coveted collectibles. There isn't a character she can't replicate with a pair of knitting needles or a crochet hook. As the owner of TalesFromTheStitch, she takes custom requests and has a modestly-priced stock of nods to Alien, Gremlins, American Horror Story to name a very few. Chelsey's creations have garnered the attention from Bloody-Disgusting, Joe Bob Briggs, Horrorfreak News, Demons star Geretta Geretta, and more. Catching her during a busy custom rush, I wanted to find out more about the craftswoman behind the 'went there' Angela Baker-Sleepaway Camp creation.

From our features, a truly original presence that has the globe's attention with no equitable reward. A Black woman's parts are desired, but not her full emotional form. And what ways can this be expressed? In horror and humor, filmmaker Mariama Diallo has unleashed the literal perfect balance of this message that is accessible to all.
