Cannot recommend highly enough

March 29, 2023

I have participated in a number of sewing and textile art courses run by Jen. I started 4 years ago with a beginners sewing course followed by an improvers sewing course. I completed a beginners dressmaking course and much to my astonishment managed to successfully sew a skirt! My main interest is however in the textile art workshops Jen has run – mostly pre Covid times but I am delighted to read in the most recent newsletter that she will be offering more textile art courses this year. I highly recommend the free motion embroidery workshop. For experienced – and not so experienced sewers – it offers a new skill to add to the sewing skills toolbox – like drawing with a sewing machine! I’ve already signed up to the print, collage, stitch workshop in May and was delighted to read in the newsletter that there will be a couple of textile art courses in the summer school programme this year – am particularly interested in the print, stitch, quilt course.

Jen is a very skilled and knowledgeable teacher – of sewing, dressmaking and all things textile art. She puts even the most inept aspiring sewer (me) at ease, instills confidence, has a wealth of practical tips up her sleeve and is always calm and reassuring. She is not just an excellent teacher, she has a range of examples of her own sewing and amazing textile art on display in the workshop.

Gosh Jenny, be careful or my head won’t fit through the door. Thank you so much for that amazing review. I’m looking forward to catching up when you come in May, and yes ‘Print, Stitch, Quilt’ is definitely up your street.

Great day! Learned a lot!

Scrappy patchwork cushion class. It was really fun! No rulers or ‘taxing’ arithmetic, just organically sewing scraps of material together and once at the size you want, putting on batting etc and quilting. I was really pleased with my finished cushion! Sitting in my sunroom now, with my cushion taking pride of place.

Jen was a relaxed type of teacher and keen to pass on her knowledge and encourage beginners just to make mistakes and move on. Very nice studio too, with plenty of room for each of the participants!

Jen’s Scrappy Patchwork Cushion workshop is such fun! You can use up a lot of those fabric remnants that would otherwise end up in landfill. Jen makes everyone feel at ease. Bring your own scraps or take a dip into Jen’s stash. I’m definitely feeling confident about making more!

Dressmaking

Learned such a lot in this class. Class quite small so got a lot of attention when required. For a beginner like me I found that really useful. Jen is a great tutor and very patient. Made a dress that actually fitted me so was delighted 🤩 .

I’ve learned so much in a short time with Jen. She’s taught me solid basic techniques and understood my questions along the way. She’s helped me understand patterns, garment construction, seams, zips, darts, and sleeves! I’m gaining more confidence and feel really proud of what I’ve made so far. I cannot recommend her enough. Her studio is lovely, very easy to work in, friendly and she’s got everything set out. There’s some lovely people all working on different things and somehow Jen keeps up with us all 😊
