Jacki says: "It is the Tournament Capital of Canada! We love our sports around here, especially hockey! GO BLAZERS!" She keeps meaning to make a plush hockey set and says that maybe she needs to go and watch a hockey game for some inspiration!
Jacki is also a stay at home mom and a full time student. She started PlushOff as an alternative to buying mass produced toys, as many of her children's toys had been recalled. "I absolutely adore making plush, it brings a twinkle to my eye to work with such fun and cuddly pieces" says Jacki.
Jacki used to live in Oklahoma in the USA for quite a few years and came back to Canada in May of 2008 so she has'nt yet had a chance to bring her craft to the community. She does have some of her plush in a Kelowna gallery which supports provincial artists.
This summer Jacki intends to participate in the Kamloops Bizarre Bazaar Artisan Showcase which happens throughout the summer on Thursday evenings in front of the Old Courthouse in Kamloops. She hopes to meet up with some great crafty people from the area.
