Övrig information

This skinnyish, reddish-haired, slightly wacky Brit is totally obsessed with 'Nipping and Tucking' - fabric manipulation and surface texture. Unique in her field, she's now internationally known for her quick, simple, innovative and original techniques with manipulated material and her hilarious lectures with real 'Strip, Show and Tell'. Jennie teaches a wide variety of classes for all levels and abilities of sewers from patchworkers, quilters and embroiderers to fashion, soft furnishing and home decor enthusiasts. Indeed, anyone interested in any form of needlework will be totally captivated by her deviously ingenious textural designs and can benefit from the wealth of creative ideas arising from her magic manipulations. Although, much of her work is created in simple calico known as muslin in the USA, her elegant ideas and natty notions may be adapted for any type of fabric and used to make quilts, wall-hangings, boxes, baskets, cushions, table linen and of course fashion garments and accessories. She works and teaches on a variety of sewing machines from Bernina, Husqvarna, Pfaff to Brother, Janome and Elna but her delectable creations can be made by hand. With seven books on fabric manipulation techniques, many articles and a variety of patterns, Jennie's material magic goes on and on.
