Interview with Wendy Gardiner
Interviews with Quilting Artists • Educational, G, 01-Oct-2011
Wendy Gardiner has been influential in the sewing industry for many years and is an internationally accredited sewing guru. She is currently Editor of Sew Hip magazine, Craft Focus Magazine. Also she is the author of a number of sewing books, writer and presenter of several new sewing DVDs.
Amongst the fourteen sewing and craft books she has written, the most recent titles include ‘Sewing Bible Clothing’ ‘Sewing Bible Curtains’ and ‘Sewing Bible Slip Covers’ published by David & Charles, ‘The Complete Book of Sewing’ published by New Holland, ‘The Encyclopaedia of Sewing Techniques’, published by Search Press and ‘Start Sewing’, published by Apple.
Wendy believes in sharing sewing skills and knowledge so that more people can make their own fashion and furnishings. She helps to realise that they can be fast, fun and simple to create. And with today’s climate of Make do and Mend, Wendy shares tips on sewing so anyone can have a go.
Also Wendy puts her organisational skills to good work by running weekend retreats at Dunford House in Midhurst together with Jennie Rayment as well as for Justhands-on.tv. For more details on both of these go to Small ads.
