Meet the Team

Amanda Chadwick

Founder and Trustee

Amanda lives in Manchester with her 3 beautiful daughters. She taught herself to sew when she was pregnant with her third child.  In May 2014 her third little girl arrived in perfect health but 2 days later was rushed back to hospital and it was discovered she was in heart failure.

What followed was a blur of tests, diagnoses, complicated medical jargon, operations, doctors, nurses and hospital admissions. Throughout her time in hospital I realised that she spent most of her time naked and she would scream in discomfort when I had to undress her for the staff to give their care. Since I couldn’t find anything suitable for her to wear either in the UK or further afield, I decided to create some comfortable specially designed pyjamas for her to wear. These special pyjamas meant she could stay dressed, warm, safe and virtually pain free while the medical team looked after her.

Founder and Trustee

Chelsea hails from North Wales but has now happily settled in Mid Wales after gaining a First in her masters degree in mathematics from the University of Aberystwyth.  After receiving a sewing machine as a Christmas present in 2014 she unexpectedly unleashed her creative side and began blogging shortly after. Chelsea helped to get Pyjama Fairies up and running on the web and the rest is history!

I wanted a way to document every item that I created which blogging allowed me to do. I also wanted to engage with the online sewing community, they are such a friendly bunch of people.  This is how I met Amanda. She posted on a fabric group on Facebook and explained that she was making pyjamas for children having surgeries. I decided that I’d love to get involved!
