About Us


Hi I am Jo, the creator of Gingham Girls. I am married to Stephen and we have 3 young girls Olivia, Sophie and Lucy and we live in rural South Otago.
After a long career in the NZ Police I needed to find another source of income, but one that would also give me the freedom to be around for our young family.  At the end of 2014 I started making some hessian bunting and attending a few markets and that is how Gingham Girls came about.  It has really grown since and I have now found my real passion in creating rustic wooden signs.
We source all our macrocarpa from our farm or from a local mill.  My product range is always evolving so please keep checking back to see new products. 
I love personalising and creating custom orders so do get in touch if you would like me to make something for you. 
Jo
