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.

Attended this on 23rd February with my granddaughter, who is a student in Scotland. I’ve tried free motion work before but never been successful with it. Jen,the tutor was brilliant, explained all the details of free motion embroidery very clearly. I had a fantastic day. Thank you Jen for introducing me to a new facet to my sewing world, looking forward to my next project !!

Decided it was time to overcome my totally irrational fear of using my sewing machine and Jen’s course was perfect to help me build confidence in lots of basic sewing techniques and in using my machine. Not nearly as scary as I thought and given me the bug to keep trying new projects.

I recently attended one of Jen’s intensive 3 day beginners sewing courses. The course was excellent. I started with no knowledge at all and left at the end of day three with 3 completed items, a range of new skills and with the enthusiasm to go home and keep sewing! I’ll definitely be back to attend future courses and am really excited about all of the possible projects I can now work on.
