Chance was born and raised in Chicago, IL, Chance developed a passion for sewing at the tender age of 14. After making her high school prom dress, Chance took a seven year break from sewing. On the morning of September 22, 2015, Chance’s passion for sewing was reignited. She has now found a new joy in the simplicity of creating fresh, innovative and handcrafted home decor. All designs are original and custom made to order by Chance Cessna herself. A percentage of all proceeds go to various charities around the world.
