More about Jennie Rayment
This skinnyish, red-haired, slightly wacky Brit really likes 'Nipping and Tucking' - fabric manipulation and surface texture. She's unique in her field. And people from whole world know for her quick, simple, innovative and original techniques with manipulated material. Also she is famous by 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 décor 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 work she created in simple calico (known as muslin in the USA), her elegant ideas and natty notions may be adapted for any type of fabric. You can make quilts, wall-hangings, boxes, baskets, cushions, table linen, fashion garments and accessories with her ideas and tips.
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 six books on fabric manipulation techniques, many articles and a variety of patterns Jennie’s magic goes on and on.
