The House of Quirk

I’m Jennie Quirk (@the_house_of_quirk) – a freelancer in Wardrobe working as a manager, assistant, supervisor, seamstress & dresser. I’ve worked in the West End, Arenas, in TV & now I work in my flat in Deptford!

I have always wanted to run my own business and Covid has allowed me the time to do that. @The_house_of_quirk is an alterations/upcycling service.

I’m super into sustainability, it's my jam – I will fix your broken clothing so that it doesn’t get dumped in the bin! If the item isn’t fixable, we can use the fabric to create something else - to be as environmentally friendly as possible.

I want to alter clothing to fit the unique body shape of all my customers. None of us are a size 10 or a size 16 – we are all individual. Maybe you are a 12.5 or a size 13. I want to make existing clothing fit to your specific (and terrific!) body. Why not make what you already own exactly what you want? The theme tune for HOQ is: Fix up, look sharp!

It was impossible to do fittings whilst we were in lockdown but I had some gingham left over from a show and so the HOQ hats & collars were born. I also make masks & scrunchies from the left-over fabric. 

I don’t have an etsy page or website (yet!) so DM or email me to chat about alterations or to order any @the_house_of_quirk products. Contact Email:

I’ve had some new ideas for upcycling different items so follow me for exciting home ware projects by HOQ!!
